Description Sherry Seskevich 2000-10-30 13:35:10 UTC
RedHat 7.0 release 2.2.17-3 for Alpha 

When selecting "Activate the changes" in Linuxconf, a message window 
titled "Fix target of a mount" opens.  The message states "the directory / 
was originally mounted on /dev/sda.  It should now be mounted on LABEL=1.  
Should I umount/mount to fix it?".  If No is selected, a similiar message 
for /usr opens.  Select No again and the message window and Linuxconf 
close.  If Yes is selected, a similiar message for /usr opens.  Select Yes 
again and the message "There were some errors.  Some errors were 
reported.  Do you want to examine the logs" opens. If a change was made in 
linuxconf, the change appears to take place when linuxconf closes.

The /etc/fstab files includes:

LABEL=/	        /
LABEL=/usr	/usr

The RedHat 6.2 /etc/fstab file includes:

/dev/sda1	/
/dev/sda2	/usr

Comment 1 Sherry Seskevich 2000-10-31 13:48:35 UTC
FYI -- I tested this problem against the release version (2.2.17-4) of RedHat 
for Alpha and the problem still exists.

Thank you.

label support in /etc/fstab was added to linuxconf in august (after the beta
see http://www.solucorp.qc.ca/changes.hc?projet=linuxconf&version=1.20
unfortunately, it was not incorporated by redhat at rh7.0 release time
You should upgrade to a newer linuxconf version to solve your problem
