Description Bernie Innocenti 2007-01-23 08:14:19 UTC
Description of problem:

(this bug should actually be against nash, but I can't find it in the bugzilla
component list)

If /usr is on a different filesystem, the /sbin/nash invocation in rc.sysinit
fails because it can't find /usr/lib{,64}/* should be installed in /lib{,64} .

I see the same problem.

On my system:
[root@localhost ~]# LANG=C df -k
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
                       1032088    614080    365580  63% /
/dev/sda3                77771     25019     48736  34% /boot

                      24383892  15633612   7511652  68% /home
/dev/sda8               248895      8421    227624   4% /tmp
                       9579324   6501036   2591684  72% /usr
/dev/sda7               497829    322850    149277  69% /var
And every time I (re)boot, the boot message complains like
"nash: cannot load ... no such files"* should be moved to /lib IMO.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 18:55:42 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here: to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

Comment 4 Bernie Innocenti 2008-04-03 19:14:43 UTC
This is still the case as of today's rawhide.

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 02:33:53 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2009-05-05 21:36:48 UTC
rc.sysinit doesn't require nash anymore and /usr should be mounted to run mkinitrd (we need it for other libraries too)
