Ubuntu versions like 8.04? have unique UUID numbers like this menu.lst
title Ubuntu 8.04.1, kernel 2.6.24-19-generic (recovery mode)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-19-generic root=UUID=5d64478e-4b2e-4c06-a74f-1a06d77a03fa ro single
Being a noob I fail to get this comment he have of (recovery mode) and why it is ro single
Single as in single user and not multi user mode?
My question is about the UUID root=UUID=5d64478e-4b2e-4c06-a74f-1a06d77a03fa
Does every Linux Mint have a similar UUID and is it for the software at update to know which update
to send? How do I find out which UUID my LM has. I use the LinuxMint-5-r1.iso and want to do a frugal
install of it.
