Description David Pullman 2005-04-01 15:52:55 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
The recently release util-linux-2.12-19 breaks NFS mounting when options are used.  This had previously been reported as fixed in bug 122448.  In that bug in #13 there is a patch that works with nfsmount.c.

We use NIS maps for automouter for Solaris and Linux hosts.  The option -quota causes the mount to fail.

I confirmed that rebuilding 2.12-19 with the one line patch fixes the symptom.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Use either automounter with option -quota specified or use manually

Actual Results:  Mount fails with log:
Apr  1 14:03:52 mizzen automount[26660]: >> Unsupported nfs mount option: quota
Apr  1 14:03:52 mizzen automount[26660]: mount(nfs): nfs: mount failure meles1:/meles1/home_mel on /home/mel
Apr  1 14:03:52 mizzen automount[26660]: failed to mount /home/mel

Expected Results:  A successful mount

The command "mount -s -o quota" works fine for me. I think you have to call "-o
quota" instead "-quota". Please, check options in your auto.master file and try
test mount command manually.

I don't mind this being closed, but it is obvious that you didn't read the bug
report.  Telling me to check the auto.master file when I said we use NIS maps is
not useful.  In addition, the changes to the nfsmount.c code were made
downstream from the source developer, as I verified by contacting him directly.

This is just a matter of making an arbitrary change to code without complete
testing.  And the issue was addressed in the previous bug report with a patch
that I pointed out.  It just needs to be put in the current version of nfsmount.c

Sorry for misunderstanding. You're right. The problem has been fixed in FC3 and
FC4. FC2 is pretty old and officialy unsupported.

I don't think that it's security or critical bug. If you have different opinion
you can reopen it and reassign to bugs@fedoralegacy.org (see

I think you should upgrade to FC3 or FC4.
