I am running Fedora on my development Amazon EC2 instances. I recently moved from Fedora 8 to Fedora 15. I noticed that when I do a "cat /etc/fstab" I see the following on my Fedora 15:
LABEL=79d3d2d4 / ext4 defaults 1 1 none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0 none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0 none /proc proc defaults 0 0 none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
When I run "cat /etc/fstab" on my older Fedora 8 instance, I see the following:
/dev/sda1 / ext3 defaults 1 1 /dev/sda2 /mnt ext3 defaults 0 0 /dev/sda3 swap swap defaults 0 0 none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0 none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0 none /proc proc defaults 0 0 none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
From my understanding of Linux, I always thought that the root drive was always on /dev/sda1. So the Fedora 8 fstab makes sense to me.
Why is the Fedora 15 filesystem different? Why isn't /dev/sda1 mounted as root ? And where did /mnt and /swap go on Fedora 15? I am not having any problems with my Fedora 15, but just trying to understand the changes and be better educated.
