Have I missed something in the woody installation


I was wondering if there's actually a way to set the mount points of different partitions for /home and /tmp for example in the woody installation? I never came across it or did I miss it? Is it in those newer installers cause I now manually created my /home on a different partition but if I'd wanted to do that with some other directories it would be a bit harder cause you've got to change the complete content of it while mounting and unmounting partitions.

It is possible to assign mount points during install.
The docs show it here.
Good Luck.

You probably missed it. During the installation, you manually edit the partition table, create a partition and assign it a mount point.

It's in the new Sarge installer as well. If you want to mount directories already on a partition, it can be done but it does take several steps.

I see, it was the alternate filesystem button. Thanks for the help!

cadj - I know fstab is simple but it's just a mess if you first install on one partition. You have to copy all files ato a different location then mount the partition and copy everything again.
