Description Harald Reindl 2011-08-11 21:01:17 UTC
with the behavior below EVERY tool working with the output of "df" used in cron-scripts results in a amil about the missing permissions for 

"/dev/sdd1" has two bind-mounts but appears THREE times in "df" AND in theoutput of "mount", this breaks the ignoring of bind-mounts in mlocate and thousands of other things - how can it be that such buggy changes are released as GA and not fixed over months?

Comment 1 Ondrej Vasik 2011-08-12 05:37:48 UTC
Thanks for report, unfortunately there is not much I can do about it at the moment - this is what is in /proc/mounts (or better said what is provided by mountlist() ) and df is just using it - there were already several threads on fedora-devel and upstream afaik with no clear solution. Anyway - already reported, so closing as DUPLICATE of #709351.

Comment 2 Harald Reindl 2011-08-12 08:29:02 UTC
why did nobody cry out loud BEFORE release and try to force the idiots upstream on wahtever package to revert their solution for non-existing problems while damaging all sort of programs and why is there nothing happening over months?

every packger says "i can not do anything"

you CAN -> file bugreports at the root of the problem and if enough peopole with @redhat.com would do this upstream would start thinking that they did really something badly wrong!

Comment 3 Ondrej Vasik 2011-08-12 08:54:22 UTC
Well, change of /etc/mtab to symlink to /proc/mounts was caused/requested by systemd changes (very late in release cycle - after some freezes of F15...) and there was a lot of loud crying on fedora-devel list - but it still went out. Btw. at least @redhat.com are upstream maintainers of coreutils (no, not me), and there was already discussion how to deal with it. As I said, no clear solution so far... see the duplicate bugzilla if you are interested in the discussions and (known) issues.

The root of the problem is outside of coreutils and is well known by the (upstream) people - but I really can't do anything with this - except some nasty hacks which I really don't plan to do...

Comment 4 Harald Reindl 2011-12-24 23:58:40 UTC
so do this hacks or treat upstream or whatever

it is UNACCEPTABLE get this stupid "access denied" messages and endless mount-lists over months and years - i have here a server with 300 automatically maintained bind-mounts for chrooted sftp-users as example

this i can no longer see because it breaks ECERY cronjob which is running with non-root privileges resulting in cron-mals as long you do not supress errors with " 2> /dev/null" wthat is a more than ugly hack since you supress real errors also
