I've had this linux machine running for a few years now, no problems etc. Very happy.
Last night I did some updates and when I booted up this morning my dual screens were screwy so I updated the Nvidea driver with
the machine is running
Linux workstation.localdomain 2.6.32-220.13.1.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Apr 17 23:56:34 BST 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
The above is the only significant change.
I have an additional hard drive that mounts to /mnt/1TB
cat /etc/fstab /dev/mapper/vg_workstation-lv_root / ext2 defaults 1 1 UUID=57473c69-4e82-450e-a0a2-9db51d10288c /boot ext2 defaults 1 2 /dev/mapper/vg_workstation-lv_home /home ext2 defaults,user_xattr 1 2 /dev/mapper/vg_workstation-lv_swap swap swap defaults 0 0 tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0 devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0 sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0 proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/sde1 /mnt/1TB ext2 defaults 0 0
This fstab like the machine has been stable, not changed for some time but now each time the machine boots it changes is dev name for example sometimes it's found at /dev/sda1 and sometimes at /dev/sde1 ?? Weird?
I am able to manually mount the drive i.e. mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/1TB/ and the data is all there and usable but I would rather have the fstab mount it than me. What's gone wrong? What's got corrupted?
