Description Mike MacCana 2004-04-15 21:49:02 EDT
Description of problem:
The mount command used in rescue mode doesn't support the use of disk
labels. This is a hassle for customers who (if anaconda can't find
their install) need to manually look inside each of their partitions
to identify them.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Rescue system where anaconda can't find the hard disk
2.Attempt to mount a partition using the obvious method
Actual results:
mount complains that the block device must be used. Customers must
manually mount and identify each of their filesystems until they find
the appropriate partition.

Expected results:
Busybox should be able to use disklabels just as the real mount can.

Thank you for the suggestion. It was passed along to product
management, but not committed for a future release.
