Description Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-08-30 15:24:13 EDT

After starting rescuemode (NFS), just after the "System is mounted under
the directory /mnt/sysimage" (translated back to English, may not match
100%), I get this traceback:

File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 232, in ?
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/rescue.py", line 180, in runRescue
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/rescue.py", line 51, in makeMtab

IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory '/etc/mtab'.
Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-08-30 15:26:01 EDT
On inspection, there is nothing under /mnt/sysimage...
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-08-30 15:37:13 EDT
And the reason is that rescuemode doesn't handle filesystem type "auto".
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2001-08-30 17:39:36 EDT
Because it's unsupported and will cause other things (such as, say, mkinitrd) to
 blow up as well...

Won't give a traceback anymore at least though as of CVS a minute or so ago
