Just installed Linux on my PC, but I can't find FSTAB?!
I'm a total newbie to Linux, and it's like I was trying to mount the floppy drive. And through many websites. I finally followed one.
According to the indications of a certain website.
I typed 'find / -type f -name fstab'
It states 'find: WARNING: Hard link count is wrong for /proc: this may be a bug in your filesystem driver. Automatically turning on find's -noleaf option. Earlier results may have failed to include directories that should have been searched. /etc/fstab
Then I continued with 'cat /path_to_fstab/fstab'
It states 'No such file or directory'
Can anyone give me a clue on what had actually happened?
actually i noticed a problem, i've finally mounted the floppy thanks to everyone's help. but, there is this floppy disk which when i mount would state 'please specify filesystem type, does this mean that the diskette is not formatted?
i can actually find it in the CLI, but in GUI, i cant find my fstab in /etc.
Open the file manager and go up to the root level--often called "filesystem". You will see directories like /bin /home /boot /usr and a bunch more. One is /etc. double-click to open, and fstab will be there.
