Hello peeps. I broke my Gentoo, so now I have questions... Long time (2003) Gentoo user, finally switching. currently running one each desktop and server, both encrypted root over lvm. Unfortunately' server is almost totally broke, every command gives "illegal hardware instruction", else i'd start with it. 24 threads and 56gb of ram makes Larry go "Wheee!" But nfs still works, so I can keep the workstation up. Currently installing base funtoo in chroot, with intent to move all to / with live-usb, setup luks, grub, and so forth. Although I may go ahead and get server up first. Have to first find or buy empty usb. Anyhow, fstab is at https://github.com/notquitesane/lenovo_4-1470_etc/blob/fix_sync/fstab, with funtoo verson at https://github.com/notquitesane/lenovo_4-1470_etc_funtoo/blob/master/fstab. It seems to me I can just copy from old to new. However, /var/cache/distfiles, /var/cache/binpkgs, and /var/db/repos/gentoo, all show as existing but empty on new system. Since I have downloaded and compiled several packages, and almost always use -bk switches, the correct location is elsewhere. What values should I put there? nqs
How can I modify fstab to have sdb1, my home partition in? It currently looks like this: NOTE: dev/sdb1 is the home partition # /etc/fstab: static file system information # # The root filesystem should have a pass number of either 0 or 1. # All other filesystems should have a pass number of 0 or greater than 1. # # NOTE: If your BOOT partition is ReiserFS, add the notail option to opts # # See the manpage fstab(5) for more information # # <fs> <mountpoint> <type> <opts> <dump/p$> /dev/sda1 /boot ext2 noauto.noatime 1 2 /dev/sda2 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/sda3 / xfs noatime 0 1 /dev/sdb1 #/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,ro 0 0
