If you know the entries, you could just 'vi' and remove yourself. I doubt if there is any command to 'auto-detect' invalid entries and remove them.

or ANY OTHER SCRIPT FOR THIS?

I doubt that ANY OTHER SCRIPT knows what you
mean by INVALID. I sure don't. Do you? If
you do, then you should be able to write a
script to do the work. If you aren't, then
perhaps you shouldn't be playing with
/ete/fstab.

( stop YELLING :)

vi /etc/fstab

delete your entries that you consider invalid.

save.

No real other way.

To quote the man page:

"DESCRIPTION
fstab is an ASCII file that resides in directory /etc. Programs read it, but do not write to or from it. System administrators are responsible for creating and maintaining this file properly."

Re: REMOVE INVALID ENTRIES IN ETC/FSTAB

I think by INVALID you mean the logical volumes for those entries have been deleted. right? or something like that and ytou do not want the filesystem to be mounted.

JUst go and delete the entries from /etc/fstab.
Its no rocket science.

abandon all hope, ye who enter here..
