Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 65524
mis-mounted file system on update (bind mounts)
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:42:46 EDT
Description of Problem:
I tried to update a system where the following line was present in /etc/fstab:
/usr/share auto bind 0 0
which happens to be legal and valid.
Unfortunately anaconda missed all bind mounts (other were "local" so no
serious consequences from that) and an update created a new tree below
/usr/share which, obviously, was overmounted on a reboot and other assorted
mess resulted as well. Recovering from that without good backups would
be "interesting" and was a chore anyway.
Assigning to an engineer.
Fixed in CVS
