mepis magic - new partitions

#1 Post by malspa » Mon Aug 16, 2010 10:03 am

I don't know if I've ever posted in the Testimonials section before, but I just wanted to mention how nice it is that when I create new partitions, they always show up when I boot back into Mepis.

The other distros I've installed don't do this automatically. It isn't that much trouble to create mount point points for the new partitions and edit /etc/fstab, but I really appreciate that Mepis doesn't require me to take those steps.

It should be mentioned if anyone wonders what makes Mepis so nice to use, they should install straight debian. It'll be an eye-opener.

It is a job.
