UUID and LABEL quotation marks?
« on: July 03, 2019, 01:43:45 PM »
How important is using (or not using) quotation marks when incorporating UUID= or LABEL= directives?

Our own faq leaves me wondering since it shows differing use of quotation marks when using an iso to boot, as compared to say a frugal install.

I've been testing just to make sure, and it seems that it works both with and without the use of quotation marks.

I just don't want to fall into a gotcha' kind of mode for one use case...

They'd matter if your label contains spaces, for example. Though labels with spaces may cause issues elsewhere, it's not recommended to have such.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Thanks curaga!

I had my blinders on thinking there might be something unique in the bootloader syntax, whereas it is just following standard protocol for system variables.

Heh, sometimes I can get tunnel-vision on a subject. :)
