Description Pierre Ossman 2006-05-08 04:24:42 EDT
When booting with a vanilla kernel (2.6.17-rc3), e2fsck will whine about / being
mounted and query the user if it should ignore this or not. When also using
rhgb, you just get the "repair filesystem" mode without any indication what is
wrong. Since this prevents booting, it's terribly annoying.

Please upgrade to the latest mkinitrd and rebuild your initrd - does that fix
this? 5.0.36 was broken in this regard...
Comment 2 Pierre Ossman 2006-05-09 03:01:13 EDT
That solved the problem yes. Thanks. :)
