Description Harald Reindl 2013-02-05 07:49:49 UTC
look at  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=887763#c13
util-linux-2.22.2-3.fc18.x86_64 kills output of "mount" completly
which leads to break also "df" and who knows what else

Comment 1 Harald Reindl 2013-02-05 12:14:49 UTC
or if you would not braindead mangle around with /etc/mtab in the SPEC-file there would no need for reboot or manually re-create the symlink after a yum update - jesus christ this is a SYMLINK and why in the world would a symlink to /proc/mount have to be touched from anything but the kernel or systemd?


Comment 2 Karel Zak 2013-02-05 15:13:50 UTC
Well, there is 

  rm -f /etc/mtab
  ln -s /proc/mounts /etc/mtab

in the spec file, maybe it should be improved to use 

  if [ ! -L /etc/mtab ]; then
    rm -f /etc/mtab
    ln -s /proc/mounts /etc/mtab
but it still does not explain why _you_ have the problem with update and on all others systems it works.
