Description David Milburn 2005-06-08 15:36:16 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050302 Firefox/1.0.1 Fedora/1.0.1-1.3.2

Description of problem:
When probing device files, the fsck command doesn't close the fd for
those devices not recognized.






Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
e2fsprogs-1.35-11.6.LE4

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. creating about 1024 partitions which are not formarted.
2. adding labeled partition into /etc/fstab like follows:
   LABEL=dummy /hoge ext3 defaults,noauto 0 0
   (NOTE: the partition labeled "dummy" does not exist.)
3. execute fsck
   (power off a system forcely, and reboot it)
  

Actual Results:  rc.sysinit scripts shows:

Checking root filesystem
[/sbin/fsck.ext3 (1) --/] fsck.ext3 -a /dev/sda2
/: Error determining size of the physical device: Too many open files
[FAILED]
