I've got my system mounting drives as I want itMany moons ago one could type mount -p>/etc/fstab to get the current settings to be setup on boot.This not longer works Any idea how to do that now?
mount -p is for mounting a device with an encryption passphrase..I'd sort of suggest that blindly overwriting /etc/fstab is a bad idea though - especially if you have devices mounted after the system boots - because if they're not there at the next boot, you'll have issues...
mount on it's own will list the mounted filesystems, but not in a format suitable for /etc/fstab
I don't know of a way to list mounts in that format - it's never something that I've ever considered... I actually hand-craft my /etc/fstab at system build time and never bother with any sortof automounter, hardware detect bloatware... but then, I'm not afraid to hand-type a mount command...
