a bug in ext3 code for 2.4.7
Hello , I use kernel 2.4.7 patched with corresponding ext3 patch. The problem I have is that when I startup I get a panic in a kernel. I started to debug util-linux and found that mount does a segmentation fault when trying to open /etc/mtab file. The segmentation fault ocurrs on open() call inside mtab_is_writable() procedure: printf("mtab_writable: pass 1\n"); if (ret == -1) { int fd; if (!MOUNTED) printf("mtab_writable: MOUNTED=null\n"); fd = open("/etc/passwd", O_RDWR | O_CRE...

[PATCH] nomtab support
This patch was sent to me by Urban Widmark <> (thanks Urban!). It allows me to mount remote Win shares to my Linux box automatically. I'm using kernel automounter. The problem was that I have a ro root fs and my /etc/mtab isn't writable (symlinked to /proc/mounts). Patch adds -n and -o nomtab options for smbmount. -o nomtab was particularly useful for me. I don't see it applied in Samba 2.2.2. I rediffed it for 2.2.2, compiled, and so far it is working fine. I'd like to see it merged into ma...

[e2fsprogs-1.24] "fsck -A -a" fails on reboot
...ilure for example, "fsck -A -a" cannot continue after checking the root filesystem on reboot, issuing the error msg "/dev/???? is mounted, e2fsck: Cannot continue, aborting." The problem is that e2fsck in e2fsck-1.24 no longer takes into account whether /etc/mtab is writable or not; whenever it finds an mounted entry in /etc/mtab (/proc not mounted yet at this time), it assumes it's already mounted, even though the system has just experienced a crash. I think the mtab checking code in older version of e2fsck is still needed: --- e2fsprogs-...

Not mounting on boot
...ey never mount on boot. [I don't reboot very often, about 1 every 1.5yrs or so, for HW changes and alike] But regardless, I'd rather automate the mounting process for these drives. [I don't want to use a boot script] The /etc/fstab does not show any ocfs drives The /etc/mtab shows the original ocfs drives I've tried editing the mtab to include the new drives, but it doesn't mount the drives and they're not listed in mtab post reboot.

2 root disks sdb1,sdc1; if set "root=/dev/sdc1", mtab lies saying sdb1 is root!?
.... When I alter SYSLINUX.CFG with: "append initrd=initrd.img root=/dev/sdc1". The boot also works just fine: dmesg|grep Kernel results in: Kernel command line: initrd=initrd.img root=/dev/sdc1 BOOT_IMAGE=vmlinuz -b THE PROBLEM: the mount command and /etc/mtab indicate that "/dev/sdb1" is root- I know this is false because the sdb disk is never accessed (LED never lites) , and because I have distinct files on sdc not on sdb. If I reverse the SCSI ids on the 2 RH 7.3 disks the behavior is identical when I boot from /dev/sdc1. W...

[PATCH] appliance: Force /etc/mtab to be a symlink to /proc/mounts
I'm currently testing this patch on Rawhide, F14, Debian and Ubuntu. It's required to fix Rawhide at the moment, so I'm going to add this patch to the Rawhide SRPM. An alternative fix would be to change the daemon to always parse '/proc/mounts'. I'm not really sure which is better. Rich. -- Richard Jones, Virtualization Group, Red Hat

[PATCH] xfstests: unmount scratch mnt in test 307
So if you have a mount command that doesn''t use /etc/mtab then it will spit out a different device for the mounted device. So say we have SCRATCH_DEV_POOL="/dev/sda /dev/sdb /dev/sdc" we will turn this into SCRATCH_DEV="/dev/sda" SCRATCH_DEV_POOL="/dev/sdb /dev/sdc" and the...

extlinux and block loopbacks
...isk image, but I've hit a wall. I've got a partitioned hard disk image with one ext2 partition in it. I've mounted the partition through a block loopback device (/dev/loop1 on the host) and chrooted into it in order to run extlinux. Within the chroot environment, /etc/mtab says: /dev/hda1 / ext2 rw 0 0 ...and within the chroot, /dev/hda1 is a device node for the loopback. But when I run extlinux, it complains: extlinux: cannot find device for path /boot I'm confused. I know that extlinux is reading /etc/mtab, and I know t...

Problem with RW_MOUNT in a diskless system
...S 5.10 and the system is read-only. It has been working fine for a while (although I discard some initiation errors, but as of functionality it is working).

Root filesystem on ext2
