Description paluch 2002-02-01 19:21:17 UTC

Description of problem:
  I'm sending a little patch for nash, that allows passing mount options to
mount command.
I found it useful to mount ext3 root in data=writeback in initrd image
(kernel forbids later change when remounting ro -> rw).

Best regards

added (via different patch) to mkinitrd 3.3.11 -- thanks

This is related I think?

The mount command in nash (3.5.8) doesn't
like the noauto option (which was in my fstab),
causing the mount to fail.
I guess this is because the standard mount
command strips this before sending to ext2?
Maybe mkinitrd is the correct place to strip

Comment 4 Matt Wilson 2003-08-26 16:10:25 UTC
nash should only include mount lines for your root partition.  this means that
you have a root partition (/) entry in /etc/fstab that has a noauto option? 
Could you attach your fstab?

Comment 5 Pádraig Brady 2003-08-26 16:27:41 UTC

I removed the noauto to get around the problem,
but from a logical point of view it should
handle the same things as ordinary mount does IMHO.

(I had marked all filesystems as noauto that
won't/shouldn't be mounted by a `mount -a`
in my startup scripts).
