Mepis vs Ubuntu/Kubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 20, 2005
Pros: I would say near 100% Debian compatible, it even uses debian repositories, I really like that. Nice 2.4 and 2.6 kernel support, all the programs work well in Mepis (Wine, Crossover, VMware Workstation - full HD support)
Cons: A one man based distro, there are not many Mepis users, small community. Warren is a genius of Linux but I'd rather be part of a big community.
Pros: Really nice distro, awesome job, it's a whole community behind the distros
Cons: I really dislike the idea of using a distro that does not users Debian repositories. For instance, I searched for "klineak" and I didn't got any result in Synaptic (I enabled all the repositories)
So, I will appreciate any opinions about my post, I'm really undecided. I want to use a Distro that has a good community, and I want to be able to access the Debian repositories, which are HUGE and are the main reason I'm behind Ubuntu/Kubuntu and Mepis
I was using Mepis, but then the new Mepis was r

Thanks for the clarification. It should be noted, of course, that Ubuntu defaults to Gnome and Mepis to KDE, then. In both distros you can download the other desktop environment, should you choose.
fstab errorlog location

Where is the log of the error generated during fstab 'execution'.
A NFS share is not being mounted on start-up as per my fstab but I do not know what the error is.
Cannot edit fstab in recovery mode. Filesystem is read only
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 24, 2007
I need to edit fstab so I can remove an invalid line. I can see the file with VI but when I try to save the change I get a file system read only message. I have tried to use w! to overcome this, with no luck.
I think I need to make the file system writable and have tried to with no luck..any help would be good. I am loged in as root.
When I try to run fsck i get an error that reads "the superblock could not be read" It refers to the line in fstab that i am trying to delete. I must change the filesystem to writable so I can edit fstab, I think. I know recovery mode puts the file system in recovery mode by default, is it possible to change this..
mounting root file system at boot: error w/ fstab (not fdisk)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 8, 2011
I recently installed a Oneiric based Linux distro. It booted fine until I changed my fstab. I altered my fstab so I could access my ntfs and other Linux partitions. Now when I boot in recovery mode, it hangs after 2 or 3 seconds with this message:
Dual Boot Mepis & Ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 7, 2013
I have disconnected all my internal hard drives, but left my external USB Hard Drive connected as a solo drive.I then installed Mepis 11 onto the drive followed by Ubuntu 12 as Dual Boot. I then booted my USB drive via the BIOS boot options, and both OS booted and ran without problems.After reconnecting my internal drives and rebooting to my USB drive Ubuntu still loads and runs, but Mepis now hangs on boot with a device not found error.Obviously since reconnecting my drives Mepis is not finding the drive where it expects it to be.It would appear that I need to configure boot/Grub to correct the problem, but I do not know how to do this.Ubuntu obviously modified Grub during installation and created a Boot Loader.When I installed Mepis Grub was written to the MBR.I would be very grateful if someone could help me with this.
My system is an Acer Aspire M3802 Desktop, Intel Q8300 Processor,8GB Ram, Nvidia Geforce GT230 Graphics Card, and four internal SATA Drives (one partitioned into two

Binding LVM Partitions in fstab?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 18, 2011
I'm trying to bind a couple of LVM partitions to directories in the /export directory for NFS hosting. I just want to make it clear that the partitions I'm trying to bind are local LVM partions, the binding is to allow NFS export (they are not networked partitions).
My distro is Ubuntu 10.10 if that makes any difference.
I can bind the partitions perfectly manually using this as an example:
