RFE: Make mount support use of filesystem labels
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:01 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Rescue system where anaconda can't find the hard disk
2.Attempt to mount a partition using the obvious method
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.
Busybox should be able to use disklabels just as the real mount can.
Internal RFE bug #121075 entered; will be considered for future releases.
Thank you for the suggestion. It was passed along to product
management, but not committed for a future release.
