Description Oliver Scheck 2003-01-24 21:00:33 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021203

Description of problem:
rc.sysinit tries to execute fsck.nfs if the root filesystem is on NFS.

The check for an NFS root filesystem is incorrect in rc.sysinit because
a Linux 2.4.x kernel has *two* entries in /proc/mounts for / e.g.:

rootfs / rootfs rw 0 0
/dev/root / ext3 rw 0 0

To correct this behaviour apply the following patch:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
initscripts-6.95-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Rebuild linux kernel for root filesystem on NFS
2. Boot system
    

Actual Results:  fsck.nfs: No such file or directory

Expected Results:  No file system check for NFS root filesystem.
