Which of the two features that /etc/fstab is reset or that
/etc/fstab is cumbersome
to modify after a chattr +i ?
- /etc fstab reset at each boot:
It is "built-in" casper since at least Edgy. It's true only for
CD/USB key boot
(I think). I reset it at each ubuntu upgrade of my USB key !
Once again: for normal boot it is not true.
- unmodifiable /etc/fstab if you set it immutable
I think it's clear.
Hope this helps,
