Is it possible to limit the spindles (drives) that
are searched for the UUIDs specified in /etc/fstab ?
My problem is my 2nd HDD has numerous read errors
(it will be replaced, eventually), and so when the
system boots, the searching for the UUIDs/labels
causes lots and lots of rubbish to be logged (and
slows down the booting considerably). As an interim
measure, I'd like to say “don't search this drive” or
“only search that drive” or somesuch.
I realise I could replace the UUIDs in /etc/fstab by
hardcoded /dev nodes (and presumably cure the issue),
but am curious if I can limit or otherwise control
which spindles are searched?
Kbuntu 9.10 in case that matters.
