Description Ralf Corsepius 2009-06-30 11:14:26 EDT
Description of problem:

anaconda, as on the F11-CDs/DVDs, is unable to parse bind-mounts from fstab.
Instead of correctly processing them, it fails badly and aborts.

This significantly reduces usability of the CDs/DVDs for upgrading existing installations and using the F11-CDs/DVD's "rescue mode".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. On an FC10 system, add a "bind" mount to /etc/fstab
/dev/VolGroup01/LogVol02 /home         ext3    defaults        1 2
/home/ftp/pub  /var/ftp/pub            none    bind

2. Reboot with F11 DVDs

Alternative: Add bind-mounts to /etc/fstab and try to boot from DVD in "rescue mode".

Actual results:
"upgrading" or "rescue installed system" aborts with:

"An error occurred mounting device /mnt/sysimage/home/home/ftp/pub as /var/ftp/pub: device /mnt/sysimage/home/home/ftp/pub does not exist"

(Note the duplicate /home)

Expected results:
