Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 457941
Remove /etc/mtab from /etc/rwtab
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:15:31 EDT
Please remove /etc/mtab from the default /etc/rwtab shipped in initscripts.
Due to Bug #214891 /etc/mtab in rwtab was never useful. Until that bug is fixed or we have union mounts, symlinking /etc/mtab to /proc/mounts is the standard for read-only roots.
With /etc/mtab in rwtab an ugly error message happens during boot.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
