leap15 beta - fstab: root mount by device name ?

Per Jessen
This looks odd:

# cat /etc/fstab
UUID=099616df-d1ee-47be-a017-fa5353f3a198  swap  swap  defaults  0  0
/dev/sda2                                  /     ext4  defaults  0  0


Any reason why root isn't mounted by UUID ?  Also, surely fs_freq and
fs_pass should be '1' and '1' ?

This looks like bug, please ensure you test the latest build (115.1 as
we still heavily working on storage) and attach installation logs
( out‎put of save_y2logs ).

Hi Josef

What's best way to verify the build# ?  This installation is from last
night, I think it should be the latest.

It should be part of iso name. like
http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/15.0/iso/openSUSE-Leap-15.0-DVD-x86_64-Build115.1-Media.iso
so in this iso it means it is 115.1 . according to times, yesterday
night should be there already the latest one.

When configuring the partions, you can press the button below the field where
you enter the mount point. You get a popup to select a.0. the method to mount.
I personally prefer mount by LABEL.

Thanks.  Aha - I don't use the ISO, I boot over PXE and install directly
via http.  I guess I can go by the ISO in the repo then - it says
Build115.1.

It's also in the media file

Out of curiousity - is there anywhere on the installed system where I
can tell which build# it is?

/etc/YaST2/build will contain the build number from which you
installed the system initially - this is not updated if you upgrade or
such.

I don't seem to have that file?  For testing, I expect to do a full
install every time, until maybe testing upgrades.

So do I, but I always have to specifically do exactly that for each filesystem.

I wrote this a while ago but my rescue system crashed: RO filesystem. Let see if I remember it all.


When yast says what partitions it wishes to create or change, click on change proposal defaults (I'm
going from memory, so wording may be different). When done, go to expert partitioner or create
proposal (I'm fuzzy on the names unless I can see it). I mean the window where you can see all the
partitions. Again, at the bottom there is an option to change defaults for partitions. Change to
label there.

Then, abort, go back in YaST, then forward again, so that YaST has to read again all the disks and
things. But interestingly, it remembers your defaults, and as it is creating a new proposal, it
applies them.

(I did this yesterday night, installing this 42.3 system).

What I found is that the place to enter the partition setup with nothing selected automatically is
hidden. I think it is create proposal, so that it asks what disks to use, and instead click at the
bottom on expert partitioner.

What I did not find was a way to read an existing fstab and use it. I used this in the past and was
very useful. Does Leap 15.0 has it?

Nor did I see an option to recreate an existing system, importing its partition layout and packages
or at least yast patterns. Does Leap 15.0 has it?

I will try to find out myself soon, but if somebody knows already... :-)

Never saw this.

The only way I know off is to do an Update.

No I can't help you.

I used an earlier Build to install the Beta, but after booting this system the
root file system / was left mounted read-only. So it was unusable. With
Build115, I tried to upgrade, but that also left the root file system / read-
only. I used a no longer used ext4 partition to install the Beta on and left
it ext4.

Thanks Freek, I had not noticed that one.  Still, by UUID has been the
default for a while, I was just surprised to see it change, for one
device.
