Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 136527
mount and unmount suddenly becoming very noisy
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:41:50 EST
Description of problem:
After recent updates on every 'mount' and 'umount' something like
that shows up:
key=volume.is_mounted, rem=0, add=0
key=volume.mount_point, rem=0, add=0
Apparently on /dev/tty as even ' >/dev/null 2>&1' is not killing it.
This is rather unkind to various utilities and cron jobs which do
not expect anything of that sort and apparently do not have
a resonable way to shut that up.
Something changed in util-linux or this is the next nasty surprise
from 'hal'? Unable to keep its debugging output to itself?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
David - is hal logging to console somewhere?
This appears to come from hal-device-manager. I'm not at all sure how
the reporter put his system in a state to get this logged to the
console. I guess it would be helpful to include the output of 'ps aux'.

He booted it. :-)
But in the meantime he applied updates from 20041020 set, rebooted
with a new kernel and extra messages for now vanished. If they will
reappear I will remember to run 'ps aux'.
