Bug#502035: busybox-udeb: Add support for LABEL= mounting
Tags: patch d-i
I was about to file a wishlist bug against partman with a patch for
using LABEL= mounting in /etc/fstab during the install process, but
right now this fails since the installer tries to mount the partitions
from the same values that are written to /etc/fstab. It uses busybox's
`mount` to do this, and so fails because busybox-udeb right now isn't
compiled with support for mounting via labels (or UUIDs).
Would it be possible to enable mounting via labels? It appears to add
less than 4k to the busybox x86 udeb binary. Is that acceptable?
