Enabling persistent naming in /etc/fstab is easy, just replace the device name in the first column by the new persistent name. In my example I would replace /dev/sda7 by one of the following:

/dev/disk/by-label/home or /dev/disk/by-uuid/31f8eb0d-612b-4805-835e-0e6d8b8c5591 Do so for all the partitions in your fstab file.

... is this really truely ?

I have to use :

UUID=31f8eb0d-612b-4805-835e-0e6d8b8c5591 /home

or I understood somewhat wrongly.
