Try running the following from the shell:

Code:
/sbin/e2label /dev/sda9 /
/sbin/e2label /dev/sda7 /boot

The e2label command puts a label on a partition. The first parameter specifies the partition, and the second specifies the label.

I have a requirement making iso. so when user install user which I don't know what will be his drive type hda/sda/ etc.

/cat/etc/fstab
LABEL=/ /flash ext3 defaults 0 2
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/ram0 / squashfs defaults 1 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0

grub.conf is also having LABEL = / and no drive name.

I am not assigning anywhere lable i.e excuting e2label and label both / and /boot.

Now when I try to install it will give following error

fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'LABEL=/
fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'LABEL=/boot
*** An error occurred during the file system check.
*** Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot
*** when you leave the shell
Give root password for maintenance
(or type Control-D to continue):

If I give ctrl+d and reboot next time its not giving this error and its working properly even if i check for label I found that / is already labeled as expected but b/boot not. Can anyone tell me why is this error resoving on boot automatically.
