Description Derrien 2001-05-21 09:01:17 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; SunOS 5.7 sun4u)

Description of problem:
I have three questions about kudzu :

Even with :
chkconfig --list kudzu
kudzu           0:off   1:off   2:off   3:off   4:off   5:off   6:off

kudzu seems to modify /etc/fstab on boot with adding , for instance,
/dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom              iso9660

How ?
Can we specify somewhere our options (insteed of noauto,owner,kudzu,ro)
Where is documented this kudzu option ?


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Delete the line from /etc/fstab
2. Reboot

It's done by the updfstab program; it's run by the kudzu init script, but
it's *also* run on PCMCIA storage insertions, for instance.
Comment 2 Marco Bertola 2001-06-12 18:46:40 EDT
How to prevent the creation of the new entry in fstab anyway? (the new entry in
fstab cannot be unmounted by non root users, it is extremely annoying
Moreover it changes the symlinks /dev/cdrom and /dev/cdrom1 and keeps adding
directories to /mnt/
Also very annoying....
