Description Matthew Galgoci 2003-01-20 04:50:47 UTC
Description of problem: I have a removable disk drive that I want to mount using a filesystem label. The drive contains an ext3 filesystem labeled as /mnt/shemp /mnt/shemp exists I also have the following entry in /etc/fstab: LABEL=/mnt/shemp /mnt/shemp ext3 noauto 1 1 Upon rebooting without /mnt/shep available in the system, I am dropped to a filesystem repair shell (of course first prompting for the root password). Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): initscripts-7.04-1 How reproducible: Every time. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Add a non-existent label mount to /etc/fstab with the noauto option 2. reboot 3. watch it prompt you for your root password and to fix your filesystem Actual results: You are prompted to fix the filesystem Expected results: The non-existent label with the noauto option should simply be ignored since you are not going to mount the filesystem automagically anyhow.

Did this happen previously?

I could have sworn it worked before, but I just tried on an advanced server 2.1 with all current updates and it indeed failed. However, on a hunch I changed the fs_freq and fs_passno fields both to 0 and the system booted without complaint. Weird. Is it semantically correct behaviour? I will test the beta4 box again tonight when I get home to ensure that the same behaviour holds.

Closing bugs on older, no longer supported, releases. Apologies for any lack of response. If this persists on a current release, such as Fedora Core 4, please open a new bug.
