Description of problem:
non auto-mounting entriess for local vfat filesystems declared in /etc/fstab
cause boot to multi-user to hang.
Compiling Vfat/DOS drivers static in kernel does not solve.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Create Vfat partitions. Format. Mount and test.
Add entries to /etc/fstab with options to no-auto mount: (and mounts points ;-)
/dev/hda1 /dos/c vfat noauto,rw 0 0
Actual Results: System hangs on boot
Expected Results: Same entries in 6.2 and 7.0 worked ok
I used auto.mount tables to mount/umount on demand.
Tried compiling MSDOS and VFAT into static kernel so that dvrs would be avail
from boot. No joy.
1. When exactly does the boot procedure hang?
2. Are you sure you have "0 0" at the end of the line in /etc/fstab?
Please answer the above questions.
