Description of problem:
I want to mount a filesystem using option 'atime'.
I have change the fstab file change the default to atime then reboot machine. It doesnt work.
And I try to remount it using.
#mount /somefolder -o remount,atime
it also doesnt work
At the same time the option both 'ro' ant 'rw' works well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
My kernel version:
[root@localhost ~]# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 22.214.171.124-167.fc11.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed May 27 17:27:08 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -q util-linux-ng
Steps to Reproduce:
1.try to mount a fs in option atime.
The option still the defaule relatime
option change to atime
You have to use "strictatime" mount option to override kernel relatime or noatime default.
(I did a change in the upstream mount.8 man page -- now it should be more obvious that 'strictatime' is necessary. So thanks for your report ;-)
