Description Laszlo Ersek 2014-02-16 16:13:05 UTC
Description of problem:
I have two squashfs files in my /etc/fstab, and they are to be auto-mounted when the system starts. It used to work with RHEL-6, and I also *think* it used to work with earlier (of course unreleased) builds of RHEL-7.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
systemd-208-2.el7.x86_64

Contents of /etc/fstab (the two relevant entries):

/home/virt-images/tools/gcc-linaro-aarch64-linux-gnu-4.8-2013.09_linux.squashfs  /mnt/arm-cross      squashfs  ro,loop  0  0
/home/lacos/Public/list-archives.gzip.squashfs                                   /mnt/list-archives  squashfs  ro,loop  0  0

dmesg:

[   10.813629] systemd-fstab-generator[710]: Checking was requested for "/home/virt-images/tools/gcc-linaro-aarch64-linux-gnu-4.8-2013.09_linux.squashfs", but it is not a device.
[   10.813680] systemd-fstab-generator[710]: Checking was requested for "/home/lacos/Public/list-archives.gzip.squashfs", but it is not a device.

After the system boots and I log in, I can successfully issue "mount -a", and these are mounted. They should be auto-mounted at boot time too.

There is a wrongly applied patch, which caused that.
