Description Eric Schwartz 2003-05-08 13:40:49 EDT
Description of problem:
NOTE: This probably isn't anaconda's bug, but I don't know quite whose it is. 
Please reassign as appropriate.

I know / is already mounted by label; mounting the EFI partition by label
would be nice as well, to protect against re-ordering of disks.  This can
cause problems when trying to upgrade kernels.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install AS2.1
2. Add a disk.
3. Notice lack of /boot/efi
Actual results:
The partition containing /boot/efi isn't mounted

Expected results:
/boot/efi is mounted

Additional info:
Happy birthday to me.

Distribution level issue.   mount in util-linux doesn't have support for mount
by label with FAT filesystems, and a variety of other things would need the
support added as well.
