Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 849208
usermount silently fails when started with wrong parameters.
Last modified: 2012-09-17 19:55:49 EDT
Description of problem:
usermount command tells user nothing if runned with totally wrong parameters.
Because */sbin directories are not in users PATH, when I type
bash completes this to 'sudo usermount'. So, I, as a preoccupied man, can't realize that I actually typed 'usermount' instead of 'usermod'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
run this for example:
sudo usermount -a -G vboxusers <myuser>

I'm afraid I can't tell what you are surprised about from the above comment. Could you elaborate?
Problem is in usermOUNT.

Yes, and /usr/bin/usermount is included in the usermODE package, so the fix is included in an updated usermODE package.
usermode-1.110-1.fc18 has been pushed to the Fedora 18 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
