Description Mike MacCana 2005-04-07 05:24:40 UTC
Description of problem:
Busybox mount can't mount devices using labels. This is a headache for most
users - it's inconsistent with the normal command, and seems to be the basis of
anaconda not mounting all the correct devices during rescues.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.linux rescue
Actual results:
Missing devices requiring manual mounting.
A mount command that doesn't consistently with the rest of RHEL (mount, fsck,
/etc/fstab, etc).

Expected results:
mount should work normally. Using the real mount command seems preferable to
adding label support to busybox (see, especially now
we don't have to worry about floppy rescues.

This is feature request and this feature is not add in upstream version. It
should be added to upstream/devel branch to be tested at first. So I'm closing
this bug.
