how do I specify that /home is on a pluggable device?


I have put my distro on a USB stick, but now don't know how to tell it where /home is located (another partition on this stick, as soon as I figure this out) because fstab says pluggable devices are handled by udev. I assume that includes my stick, because it's pluggable and I don't see it in fstab.

So do I have to edit something in /udev to specify the home partition? I suppose it's probably the file /udev/rules.d/99-usbstorage.rules.unused; that's the only obvious one.

For your system the USB device is not a pluggable device, it is seen as normal harddisk, so you can just add an entry for /home to your fstab. I would recommend to use a label or the UUID if that partition instead of the device file (/dev/sdXY), for better support of portability.
