Well hopefully I dont get smacked around to hard on this one. I have just
finished a search of the tech and misc list (concentrating on the last few
months--i.e., Feb to present) using keywords "soft updates" and "softdep"
(each as their own search term) and didnt find anything that would help me.
here is the deal:
I have read the mount(8) man page and I believe I successfully enabled soft
updates on my /tmp dir by doing the following:
# umount /tmp
then remounting using the following command:
mount -o softdep /dev/wd1d /tmp
I didnt get an error, so the assumption here is that /tmp is mounted with
soft updates enabled.
My question is:
How do I make it so each partition is mounted with softupdates
automatically enabled at boot time? That is, it seems that it needs to be
mounted with the softdep option and I cant figure out how to do that
without manually remounting each file system with the softdep option every
time I reboot the system. I am sure there is a better way.
I looked over the fstab man page and I dont see where I would insert the
Some help would be appreciated
