RFE: Document bind mount format in fstab manpage
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:16 EST
After looking at Bug 151533: fsck tries to read directories as block devices
with some bind mount setups, Ted said that since a malformed bind mount line in
fstab was the root of the problem, perhaps the bind mount format should be
documented in the fstab or mount man pages. Thoughts?
/orig /mountpoint none bind 0 0
makes most sense...
(as a side point, for bind mounts, mount doesn't seem to care at all what's in
the filesystem field.... should it? should it enforce "none?")
