Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 136820
inappropriate /etc/fstab generation
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:52 EST
Description of problem:
anaconda generates inappropriate /etc/fstab file for virtual
filesystems. /etc/fstab shoule be like below:
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs noatime 0 0
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install FC/RHEL, and see /etc/fstab.
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Boot the system.
3. Run command: "mount /dev/pts"
mount: none already mounted or /dev/pts busy
mount: according to mtab, none is already mounted on /dev/pts
mount: devpts already mounted or /dev/pts busy
mount: according to mtab, devpts is already mounted on /dev/pts
The mount(8) man page refers to this probelm as below:
The proc file system is not associated with a special device,
and when mounting it, an arbitrary keyword, such as proc can
be used instead of a device specification.
(The customary choice none is less fortunate: the error
message 'none busy' from umount can be confusing.)
Fixed in CVS
