Description Ben Boeckel 2007-12-22 07:23:44 EST
Description of problem:
In my fstab, I have my local partitions (/ and a storage) set to mount with 
relatime. New releases of the kernel have since my currently running version 
(kernel- have failed to mount the partitions due to relatime 
no longer being recognized as a mount option. Has support for the option been 
dropped and if so, why?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q kernel
kernel- // Works here (what I'm using now)
kernel- // Stopped working here
kernel- // Still doesn't work

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a partition mount with relatime in fstab.
2. Use new kernel
Actual results:
Fails to boot.

Expected results:

Additional info:
$ cat /etc/fstab
LABEL=/1        /       ext3    relatime        1       1

relatime is now the default in Fedora.
Comment 2 Chuck Ebbert 2008-01-02 11:47:44 EST
This is a mkinitrd bug.
Comment 3 Ben Boeckel 2008-01-08 08:27:47 EST
I removed relatime from fstab and I still get the "relatime is not a valid 
mount option" message with the newest kernel. The interesting thing is that 
the kernel that works with it was then unable to mount / in read-write mode. I 
would guess that this means that after doing relatime, you can't go without 
(it's my guess at least).
