Description rakarra 2001-05-05 06:53:11 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; 0.8) Gecko/20010215

Description of problem:
df -l, according to the man page, is supposed to only show local mounts.
However, it currently shows filesystems mounted from Windows machines by
the smbmount command.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. smbmount a windows filesystem.
2. Run df -l

Actual Results:  See above.

Expected Results:  Everything but the SMB filesystems.

Additional info:

I haven't rebooted my machine after manually upgrading to 7.1. I'm still a
hand-compiled 2.2.16 kernel with the international encryption patch. I
doubt that makes much difference though.

Comment 1 Erik Kline 2002-06-20 17:03:00 UTC
What's worse: as of RedHat 7.3, fileutils-4.1-10, strace of df -l shows that it 
stat64's all filesystems in the mtab and then attempts to print just the local 
filesystems. This hangs if there's an NFS mount hang. df -l should only stat 
local filesystems period. Bad algorithm!

Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-08-29 23:43:59 UTC
fileutils 4.1.9-10 explicitly excludes smbfs partitions.
