Description Joseph Shraibman 2005-07-26 13:09:34 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc3 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
I have this entry in /etc/fstab for my usb hard drive

/dev/sda1              /mnt/usb-hdd                ext3    user,noauto        0 1

The problem is that after I upgraded to the latest kernel my computer refuses to boot.  When mounting filesystems it complains about an invalid device (can't cut and paste the 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put the above line in your /etc/fstab

Actual Results:  During boot it complained about an invalid device.  It then dropped me to a root shell and rebooted after I left the root shell.  I had to comment out the line in /etc/fstab

Expected Results:  boot should have continued.  The mount point was noauto

Additional info:

I'm pretty sure this bug happened after I upgraded kernels, but I'm not sure.  It could be something else I upgraded.  The machine in question is headless so I can't easily play around rebooting it with different kernels.

never mind, this bug is not a regression.  It was caused by the 1 in the last
fstab field.
