Description Fabio Massimo Di Nitto 2013-11-18 08:02:06 EST
Description of problem:

Looking for example at bug#1031636, where filesystems can potentially add a trailing slash in the device section of /proc/mounts ....

it would very useful if findmnt could automatically handle it when issuing commands similar to:

findmnt -o TARGET --noheadings

and match the device, since effectively there can´t be both devices at the same time.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Karel Zak 2013-11-19 05:25:13 EST
It's already implemented for upstream, Fedora and RHEL7. It should be pretty simple to backport the function to RHEL6.
