Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 428447
mount does not pass the -f option down to mount.gfs2 helper
Last modified: 2008-01-11 19:16:42 EST
Description of problem:
This bug is related to bug 333961 and it causes problems during bootup (when
gfs/gfs2 is used as the root fs)
if you do a
mount -t gfs2 /dev/sda1 /mnt/gfs2 -f
mount.gfs2 doesn't receive the -f option and cannot do a fake mount
I suspect this is the case with all mount helpers in general, in that, they
never get the -f option.
Please, update your system. The problem has been fixed by errata 2007:0561, RHEL5.1.
