Description Hallvard B Furuseth 2002-05-13 05:34:38 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.79 [en] (X11; U; SunOS 5.8 sun4u; Nav)

Description of problem:
The mount(8) manpage says one can create /etc/filesystems to change
the order of filesystems used, but does not describe its format.
Nor is there any filesystems(5) manpage to check.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man mount filesystems

Comment 1 Elliot Lee 2002-06-20 13:43:39 EDT
/etc/filesystems follows the same format as /proc/filesystems, for which there is no 
documentation, because the format is pretty simple and possibly subject to change... The 
notes in the mount.8 man page are sufficient to figure out how to change the file, though.

Not worth fixing.
