Description Noel McLoughlin 2016-02-26 17:32:03 EST
Description of problem:

Consider setting /boot/efi 'noauto' mount option as anaconda install default. Runtime access is only required during certain administrative operations.

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

# rpm -q grubby

# rpm -q anaconda

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. vi /etc/fstab
2. Add 'noauto' mount option to /etc/efi
3. umount /boot/efi

Actual results:


Expected results:

# grubby --update-kernel=ALL --args="console=ttyS0" --config-file=/boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg
error opening /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg for read: No such file or directory

Additional info:
Comment 1 Noel McLoughlin 2016-02-26 17:33:20 EST
During administrative operations, /boot/efi can be mounted manually.

# mount /boot/efi
Comment 2 Kamil Dudka 2016-02-27 07:46:01 EST
The some applies to /boot, does not it?

Anyway, how is this related to the basesystem package?
Comment 3 Noel McLoughlin 2016-02-27 10:58:52 EST
I understand arguments for/against (see and would dislike this enhancement in Enterprise Linux, but think it should be considered in Fedora as consumer distro.
