    how to decide the parameter value of root in grub.conf


    After I installed Linux OS(for example:SuSE10,redhat5),the [root] parmeter of [kernel] in created grub.conf seems that sometimes it's defined to device name.sometimes it's defined to Label or sometimes UUID.

    So ,I want to know what is that relative to? Hard disk type or OS version or both?

    Thanks.

    Hello and welcome to the forums!

    I personally prefer to use persistent block device naming, and use labels for naming my devices. You can check this wiki page for more information on the subject that might help you:

    Note that the article was written for Arch, but it should also work with other distributions.
