Can genfstab run after "arch-chroot /mnt"?

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Be … stallation

I would like to combine these two entries:

"1.6 Install the base system"
"1.8 Chroot into the system"

...into a single "Install the base system and chroot into it", but 1.7 is in the way ("Generate an fstab"). I think that the /etc/fstab file should be in the next section, in "1.9 Configure the system".

What do you think?


PS: I couldn't decide whether this should go in the "Forum & Wiki discussion" section or here. I guess it has more to do with the install process so I'm posting it here.

I think the best place to discuss it is the talk page of Begginer's Guide.

Here's a recent victim: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=148463

This is because there's just too little information on chrooting, and it's easy to miss. Fstab is a configuration file. It should be in the next section.


Edit: There... I tried editing it a bit. I hope it's easier to spot now.

Dear members,
I try find in google how to install genfstab and this topic is in first position. But here you only forward it into another topic. This is not good solution. Please be kind and if you know answer write it here. Thanks in advance.
