Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 215333
Last modified: 2014-12-01 18:08:32 EST
Description of problem:
/dev/root perms prevent backups
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install RHEL5-beta1
2. try to access /dev/root with amanda ( backup )
seems same issue as https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=162686
move to beta2
any word on a fix for this?
$ find /sys/ -name root | wc -l
/dev/root is created with MAKEDEV
oops, wrong.. hmm.. it's already there from initrd
changing severity to high as not being able to do backups is bad.
See also bug #162686.
Was this fixed in RHEL 5.1 ?
