Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 242073
Network mounts deleted from /etc/fstab
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:05 EST
Description of problem:
After an upgrade from Fedora Core 6 to 7, lines corresponding to network mounted
drives were missing from /etc/fstab; e.g.:
files:/files/u0 /files/u0 nfs
rw,hard,intr,rsize=32768,wsize=32768 0 0
Unknown. The workstation in question has a PATA hard drive and so presumably
had to have /etc/fstab rewritten to change "hda" to "sda" on filesystem and swap
partitions. I'll be doing future upgrades on machines with SATA and SCSI drives
as well; if the results differ I'll reply to this bug.
Even on SATA-based workstations where partition names already began with
/dev/sd, my /etc/fstab files are being rewritten; the only change in those cases
is that all NFS entries are removed.
Same thing here with NFS mount point ...
Anaconda a little bit too zealous ;-)
This bug is now addressed by an updates image. It is available for download at:
Instructions for using updates disks are located at:
If possible, please test this image out and report if it fixes your issue or
not. Once we are confident that your issue is solved by this image, we are
going to announce it more publicly. This fix may also be included in an updated
anaconda package later for people who are making custom Fedora distributions.
Thanks for your time.
The updates image works correctly on every computer I've tried.
