Description Gabriele Turchi 2000-10-06 17:22:49 UTC
I've configured a disk partition to be mounted on /var/spool/squid, and
fstab failed to mount them. Label too long? Also, using labels on a
"complex" system (I use a test system with more than 5 different root
partitions) sounds not so good to me... Is possible to disable that

You can reset the labels on the partitions using the e2label command.

We check to make sure that no two partitions have the same label when creating
new filesystems.

Finally, Brent, could you try to reproduce the problem with mounting

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2000-10-06 18:59:19 UTC
I was unable to verify.  /var/spool/squid mounted on reboot after installation
with no problems.  I believe that this used to be a bug that now seems to be
fixed on our latest internal builds.  I'm closing the bug.  Please reopen if the
problem reappears
