Description Jos Vos 2002-08-19 10:37:14 EDT
Description of Problem:
In case "console=none" is given as boot parameter, /initrd/proc seems to stay
mounted and thus unmounting /initrd (rc.sysinit) fails. I have no idea what the
relation of /proc with console=none, but I leave this as an exercise for the
reader ;-).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
6.90-1 (in fact, any version, at least since RH 7.3 and up).

How Reproducible:
By specifying "console=none" as boot parameter.

Fix (workaround):
See the patch I'll attach to this bug report (the fix is against 6.67, but that
doesn't matter). I've done the check in the same way as it is checked whether
devfs is still mounted below /initrd.

Closing bugs on older, no longer supported, releases. Apologies for any lack of
With the move to initramfs, it is unlikely that this will change for older releases.
