Does using chattr keep you from sending a copy of it to this
list? I do it in two steps. I copy /etc/fstab to gedit. then to this
list. Here it is:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
# / was on /dev/sda2 during installation
UUID=26f48822-5b50-481b-b9cd-1322dac799cb / ext4
-ro 0 1
# swap was on /dev/sda3 during installation
UUID=77cb374a-6349-427e-9b57-ea6776f4a52d none swap sw
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
/dev/sda12 /home ext4 defaults 1 2
It takes less than a minute to do. Please try yourself
