In looking up a similar issue I found this thread. I wanted to touch base on a couple things.
First, IMHO, the UUID is desperate and unworkable. There is a better solution than using the UUID that works on 10.04 of Ubuntu. That is to use the
In the /etc/fstab file swap the UUID with the
LABEL='<label>' (and be sure to use the single quotes). Before doing this please ensure that you have used gparted to add a label to the drive. This label is just like the label you might have created to identify your floppies, your zip drives (not files), or even your old HDDs under Windows.
The next thing I wanted to touch on is that above someone gave the following command.
That command I have never seen before. Either it is something that I didn't know exists or it is wrong. In the case that it might be wrong I'll correct the syntax.
sudo gedit /etc/fstab
Finally I appreciate the person that appears to have given the proper answer where you want to have a folder under the root of the partition as your home. The procedure described in this thread does not touch on that even though it is the most APPROPRIATE implementation. You should always put your home folder in a folder under the partition instead of pushing your home folder into the root folder of the partition.
