Description Stephen John Smoogen 2001-08-19 17:35:55 UTC
Description of Problem:

After upgrade machine was unable to mount cdrom. 

1) Upgrade removed /mnt/cdrom /mnt/floppyfile
     /mnt/dos remained
2) autofs installed and enabled
     was installed previously and NOT enabled
3) turning off autofs did not clean up things. 

I do not know if this is anaconda, filesystem, autofs or someother file but
it is definately not kosher.

How Reproducible:

Several people on testers list have seen this one.

Hrm, interesting. Didn't forsee that consequence of relying on updfstab.

I'm assuming /mnt/cdrom and /mnt/floppy are in /etc/fstab *without* kudzu entries?

Comment 2 Stephen John Smoogen 2001-08-20 14:14:16 UTC
Here is the floppy and cdrom entries. The floppy does NOT have kudzu. Both
cdrom's do.

This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-20 20:24:13 UTC
Will be fixed in filesystem-2.1.6-2; note that this will not recreate any that
were deleted, but it will prevent their deletion on upgrade in the future.
