stuff. Nothing is easier than opening vi and editing fstab ... you just should know what you do.thomasmoens wrote: Because it takes some time
Welcome to UNIX-like operating systems. This is how it's done here.thomasmoens wrote: and editing text files won't really encourage new users.
This is *NOT* what Linux is about. Nobody forces you to use Linux, and I personally don't really care if it motivates people to switch or not. If they find this very easy and clean way to configure one's system "unmotivating" then such people switched for the wrong reasons anyway - they should switch back to whatever OS they used beforethomasmoens wrote: Only if there is a way to configure a whole pc without having to edit one text-file new beginners would be a lot more motivated to switch to Linux.
There are powerful text editors (e.g. with automatic syntax highlighting ... very useful to check for syntax errors!) that work in GUI too and by which you can edit your config files while working in the GUI ... if that is what you meant with your comment above.thomasmoens wrote: And the beauty of it all is that you can just write a GUI to edit the text files
No. And the simple answer is: It's not needed, IMHO. If you want to mount NFS shares automatically on system boot then you have to edit your /etc/fstab ... And that's a fairly advanced topic, so you should already have all necessary admin knowledge to do that -- in that case you will prefer the shell anyway and never use such a GUI tool.thomasmoens wrote: I was just wondering if there was already a program capable of doing this
You are of course free to re-invent the wheel and the fire ... but again: I just fail to see the necessity for thisthomasmoens wrote: mounting will go alot easier & faster if you have some sort of automated process
