Hi. I just want to get some feedback, whether I should file this as a bug or if this is intended behaviour.
Ever since using the newest iso-installation cd's, grub won't install automatically in my systems (sata disk, no raid). I have to manually copy the rootfs entry from /proc/mounts to /etc/mtab because this entry is missing there. So basically after
cat /proc/mounts >> /etc/mtab
in a before installing grub solves the problem.
Is anyone else experiencing this? Should this be reported as a bug?
I don't know if this will help you or not. But I was reading up on the installation of OpenVZ, and saw that they make a symlink from /proc/mounts to /etc/mtab, albeit for different reasons. But I've tested it, and it works just fine. It serves to make mtab continuously updated.
mv /etc/mtab /etc/mtab.bkup
ln -s /proc/mounts /etc/mtab
Does the job for me.
