Upon freshly reinstalling my Manjaro LXQT I tried to make a swap file where I need to locate my fstab so i tried /etc/fstab but it doesnt exist.
cat /etc/fstab ?
I don't think the system would boot if it weren't there.
i cant really find it on PCMan-FM I have even run the file manager at root
Well, it's there. Are you sure you're not looking in your /home directory?
You can edit it with
sudo nano /etc/fstab
You probably shouldn't run your file manager as root.
So, what, exactly is missing? You just shared a copy of your
/etc/fstab so it clearly isn't missing.
Is there something else you are expecting to see?
It currently contains a single entry for your root filesystem.
Your fstab is not missing
If seems you are using a MBR partition schema - at least since you don't have an efi partition.
What I don't quite understand is the UUID of the partition - it indicates GPT partition which belongs - mostly - to a an EFI system.
Probably he is legacy booting a GPT disk. As long as the BIOS supports it, it should be OK to do that.
I know - not many posting in #newbies section knows that
i forgot to use sudo nano to edit /etc/fstab
