Description matthew 1999-09-30 01:31:33 UTC
In the /etc/rc.d/init.d/netfs script the last step is to do
a "mount -a".  We've already done a mount all in the
rc.sysinit script, why is it here aswell?  This reduces the
usefullness of this as a seperate script somewhat.
Certainly don't exepect my unmounted local file systems to
re-appear becuase I've brought up the networked ones.  We've
gone half the distance by having a seperate netfs script in
the first place so why not seperate the functions completly?

(personally I think the mounting the non root/boot fs's
should be seperate from rc.sysinit to but that's neither
here nor there. :))

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-09-30 14:51:59 UTC
The reason that the mount -a is there is so that filesystems
that might get mounted *under* the network file systems get
(say, /usr is NFS and /usr/local is local.)

Admittedly, it's an odd case, but having it there shouldn't
hurt anything.
