Description masanari iida 2004-06-17 05:42:47 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7)

Description of problem:
Current online manual of mount(8) does not document some 
current mount command options.

In /usr/src/linux-2.6/fs/ext3/super.c
match_table_t tokens section has more options than 
"Mount option for ext3" section of online manual.

This time I wanted to change "commit interval time", but that 
option was not in the online manual.
I had to read the source.


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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man mount
2. Search "mount option for ext3" section.
3. Find "commit interval"

Actual Results:  commit interval option is not documented.

Expected Results:  All mount command supported option have to be
documented into online man page.

Additional info:

/usr/share/doc/util-linux-2.12 also doesn't include what I am
looking for.

I notice that the option "pamconsole" is missing as well.
