Default Patch for Moblin Image Creator -- add / entry in fstab

Alek,

Attached is a patch to Moblin Image Creator that adds an entry to fstab
for the / ext3 partition. This fixes a bug where GnomeVFS will not work
properly without such an entry.

Thanks,
Michael

Default Patch for Moblin Image Creator -- add / entry in fstab

Michael,

Thanks for the patch. Initial test shows although the system's real root is unionfs containing ro squashfs plus rw ext3 /dev/sda2, adding the line does no harm to system. System shows a /dev/sda2 mount to /, but according to /proc/mounts, there is no such mount. It seems an ideal workaround.

JohnV, Rob,
Any thoughts regarding to the patch?

Thanks,
Alek

Better to use a placeholder for the device name, if it doesn't actually
correspond to the mount. Otherwise, this is very confusing to developers.

e.g.:

+ print >> fstab_file, "unionfs / unionfs defaults 0 0"
