Description Gene Czarcinski 2000-08-12 17:07:31 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
Comment 1 Glen Foster 2000-08-13 16:13:32 EDT
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Gold-release
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2000-08-14 13:01:55 EDT
How were these extra partitions created?
Comment 3 Gene Czarcinski 2000-08-14 17:02:38 EDT
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.
Comment 4 Erik Troan 2000-08-15 14:58:34 EDT
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.
