Description Aleksey Nogin 2000-07-29 19:55:51 EDT
In root-over-NFS setup, rc.sysinit still tries to fsck /. Ideally, it
should check whether / is something that fsck is capable of checking before
running fsck... It is a minor problem since it only results in error
message being printed.

Comment 5 david d zuhn 2002-11-20 15:27:53 EST
There are two entries in /proc/mounts for an NFS mounted root filesystem:

rootfs / rootfs rw 0 0
/dev/root / nfs ro,v2,rsize=4096,wsize=4096,hard,udp,nolock,addr= 0 0

The patch I attached is what we use in house for managing root NFS filesystems.
We're only interested in the non-rootfs entry for /.
