*hrmph* Really, this is embarrassing here as well
I'll repost from this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ritten-919319/
You know, when I prepared the switch of the 12.1/home (sda11) to the 11.4/home (sda6) working horse, I used the vi-editor in a hurry to edit /etc/fstab. I (or rather openSuSE) use the UUID-scheme to identify partitions. So I changed /dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST31000520AS_5VX0VRDP-part
11 /home to /dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST31000520AS_5VX0VRDP-par6 /home.
Little wonder mount didn't find that partition.
