Description Karel Zak 2007-04-06 09:48:19 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #227903 +++

-- Additional comment from kzak@redhat.com on 2007-02-09 05:41 EST --
It's bug in the mount command and also in mount.nfs:

  - the mount calls mount.nfs without the "-f" option. (this bug report)
  - the mount.nfs doesn't work with "-f" correctly (it doesn't update mtab) (see
  bug #227988)

-- Additional comment from kzak@redhat.com on 2007-04-06 05:38 EST --
The problem has been fixed in util-linux-2.13-0.46 and nfs-utils-1.0.10-6
