Description SEKINE Tatsuo 2004-10-22 10:56:44 EDT
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):

How reproducible:
Install FC/RHEL, and see /etc/fstab.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install!
2. Boot the system.
3. Run command: "mount /dev/pts"

Actual results:
mount: none already mounted or /dev/pts busy
mount: according to mtab, none is already mounted on /dev/pts

Expected results:
mount: devpts already mounted or /dev/pts busy
mount: according to mtab, devpts is already mounted on /dev/pts

Additional info:
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.)
