Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 16081
extra partitions NOT cleanly unmounted
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
The first boot after an install, "extra" partitions are not cleanly
unmounted. For example, I have a partition that I specified as
/home/vmware -- it had to be fsck on reboot because not cleanly unmounted.
As far as I can tell, the only partitions cleanly unmounted were / and
/usr. The rest (/home, /home/vmware, /usr/src, and /usr/local) needed
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Gold-release
How were these extra partitions created?
Everything had been precreated. Three out of six partitions were formated.
Only / and /usr were unmounted. /home, /home/vmware, /usr/local, and /usr/src
(formated) wee not unmounted cleanly.
We've tried 3-4 installs w/ prexisting partitions mounted. They all mounted and
unmounted fine, and gave a clean reboot. If you can give more details on this,
please reopen the bug.
