Unhappy Redhat 9.0 FSTab problem


All,

I'm having a weird problem with redhat 9 fstab. I have everything setup the way I want, and have set the file permissions to read only. Unfortunately, any time I reboot the system I get a reversion back to a different fstab. This is annoying, because it does not detect my cdburner, external harddrive, or zip drive correctly. Also, my directories in the /mnt directory disappear.

I'm assuming there must be some kind of hardware scanner that redoes this at boot, but I really want it to stop. It's gotten bad enough I've actually written a bash script to redo the fstab, mnt directories, dev directory links, and then remount the whole thing. Anyone know of anything I can do to make this stop?

Thanks

kudzu question

Disable kudzu completely, or delete the kudzu option from the fstab?

Try deleting Kudzu from your fstab entries first.

Thanks,

That fixed it perfectly! Even though I rarely reboot, this was a huge nuisance. I appreciate your help!
