Description LunaSilverMoon 2012-06-22 23:27:23 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to mount I must specify type of filesystem.  Just after the upgrade to 6.3 the mount command does not attempt to try figure out the filesystem so the -t is a must now.  This happens even with ext4.

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

How reproducible:
mount /dev/mapper/LogVol06 /mnt/folder

Steps to Reproduce:
1.mount /dev/mapper/LogVol06 /mnt/folder
Actual results:
mount /dev/mapper/LogVol06 /mnt/folder
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
mount -t ext4 /dev/mapper/LogVol06 /mnt/folder

Expected results:
mount /dev/mapper/LogVol06 /mnt/folder

Comment 2 Karel Zak 2012-06-25 15:34:06 EDT
The command mount uses libblkid to recognize filesystem type. There is
no libblkid update in RHEL6.3.

Please , try

  BLKID_DEBUG=0xffff mount /dev/mapper/LogVol06 /mnt/folder &> blkid.log

and add blkid.log to bugzilla, thanks.

Never mind you can close this off because it was a typo I did with another bug I reported.  It is working as it was.
