Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 14949
Fix target of a mount
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
When activating changes, I get a variation of this message for ALL mounted
The directory / was originally mounted on /dev/hda4.
It should now me mounted on LABEL=/.
Should I unmount/remount to fix it?
Yes No Help
BTW- Help file help.eng/fstab/mtab not yet written
Redhat started using a new system of designating drives in 7.0 in fstab instead of using /dev/hda4 it now uses volume labels, which mount automatically
looks up for you. (this feature was available in 6.2 and probably earlier btw, but wasn't used) This can be really confusing for anyone who has not seen
this type of notation before though, Redhat should include comments in fstab to indicate what is is doing, as the first time I saw this I thought linuxconf
had messed up my fstab. Anyways obviously linuxconf needs to have support for this method also, as it seems to not recognize it.
*** Bug 15521 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I'm told Linuxconf 1.19r3 will support this syntax, and I'll close this bug once
it's added to the build tree. Incidentally, the new syntax is documented in the
fstab(5) man page.
