make nfs-client setup in YaST to modify /etc/fstab

Feature state

openSUSE 12.1
openSUSE Distribution


when setting up a NFS-Client in YaST, it does not modify the /etc/fstab. So it always throws an error message "shares cannot be mounted from /etc/fstab" after one has finished the setup of the shared folders.
So in the current state, the user has to modify the /etc/fstab manually. But when you set up the nfs client in YaST, you already have provided all information to the system and it could easily put all this into the /etc/fstab file.

So if we had such a function, even if it just was a checkbox "write to /etc/fstab" so that experienced users or the ones who want to do something advanced, have the choice not to modify /etc/fstab, this would be great.

User benefit:

because it would make life easier and YaST an even greater tool. And with that, openSUSE an even more awesome distro :-)

Indeed. I always have problems with nfs shares at the beginning (usually related to permissions), and the resolution process is never painless.
So anything to make NFS share easier for a home/soho user is most welcome.

sounds like a bug you should file in bugzilla rather than a new feature
