Can you attach your /etc/fstab?
Comment 2 Neil Darlow 2001-11-28 10:02:09 EST
Below. I prettied it up a little i.e. spaces to tabs and fitted each entry 
onto a single line. If it's a parsing error, it should be a little more robust.

LABEL=/         /               ext3    defaults                1 1
LABEL=/home     /home           ext3    defaults                1 2
LABEL=/tmp      /tmp            ext3    defaults                1 2
LABEL=/usr      /usr            ext3    defaults                1 2
LABEL=/var      /var            ext3    defaults                1 2
none            /proc           proc    defaults                0 0
none            /dev/pts        devpts  gid=5,mode=620          0 0
none            /dev/shm        tmpfs   defaults                0 0
/dev/hda2       swap            swap    defaults                0 0
/dev/hdc2       swap            swap    defaults                0 0
/dev/cdrom      /mnt/cdrom      iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro   0 0

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2002-04-07 22:38:59 EDT
Should be fixed in kudzu-0.99.50-1.
Comment 4 Philip Rowlands 2002-12-13 16:20:25 EST
Still getting this error in Redhat 7.3, kudzu 0.99.52, approx 1 in 10 
bootups.

Dec 13 20:45:05 localhost updfstab: invalid line in /proc/partitions: ' 64' 
Dec 13 20:45:05 localhost kudzu: Updating /etc/fstab failed 
Dec 13 20:45:17 localhost kudzu:  succeeded 

/etc/fstab is:
LABEL=/      /            ext3    defaults        1 1
LABEL=/boot  /boot        ext3    defaults        1 2
none         /dev/pts     devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
none         /proc        proc    defaults        0 0
none         /dev/shm     tmpfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/hda3    swap         swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/fd0     /mnt/floppy  auto    noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
