Description Phillip Sorensen 2005-01-12 17:15:56 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.2) Gecko/20040301 Description of problem: If /usr is on a seperate partition from root it fails to properly start and create the symlinks. The error message is that it cannot find program 'head'. The head program is located in the /usr/bin directory, but devlabel is only run before any partitions but / are mounted. I can work around the problem by adding a call to devlabel in rc.local Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): devlabel-0.48.03-6 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install with /usr on a separate partition 2. Setup devlabel 3. Reboot Actual Results: Devlabel gives an error message and does not create the links Expected Results: Devlabel creates the links Additional info:

Comment 2 Phillip Sorensen 2005-01-12 20:02:02 UTC
I tried the patch. It did get rid of the error with head, and worked with /usr mounted, but it did not fix the main problem. Looking at things more devlabel calls (at least for my setup) 3 other programs in /usr/bin: partition_uuid scsi_unique_id raw The first two are part of the devlabel package. The 'raw' program is from the util-linux package. Devlabel works properly if these three file are copied to /bin
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2005-01-12 20:15:38 UTC
So, that has *never* worked, it's not something that failed in U4, correct?
Comment 4 Phillip Sorensen 2005-01-12 21:19:57 UTC
I have only started using devlabel it in the last couple weeks, but the devlabel package in the install U3 does not work either. This may mean it never worked.
