Description cspence 1999-03-23 21:01:28 UTC
I tried adding the line

cholla:/export/home/cds	/mnt/cholla   nfs
user,noexec,nodev,nosuid,rw,soft 1 1

to /etc/fstab (using linuxconf).  mount version 2.8a as
distributed with redhat linux 5.2 wouldn't do it,
complaining that it couldn't find /mnt/cholla in /etc/mtab
or /etc/fstab.  mount 2.71 works fine with this entry.

Comment 1 cspence 1999-03-23 22:15:59 UTC
Ok, I see from Bug #49 that I had some invalid lines in my /etc/fstab
file (three zeros at the end).  Commenting out those lines made things
work fine.  But how did they get that way?  I didn`t put them there.
They were

/dev/hda1  none  ignore 0 0 0
/dev/hda2  none  ignore 0 0 0

Are they left-overs from the previous 5.0 or 5.1 installation?
