Title: Inportant fstab and localmount update Author: William Hubbs <willi...@gentoo.org> Author: Ian Stakenvicius <a...@gentoo.org> Display-If-Installed: sys-apps/openrc Content-Type: text/plain Posted: 2016-11-04 Revision: 1 News-Item-Format: 1.0
Recent updates to service scripts in OpenRC and (e)udev have removed the requirement for udev to "settle" before its startup completes. The result of this is that services which used to wait for udev to finish processing all kernel events will now start earlier. One such service is localmount. If "/dev/disk/by-*" device paths are used for mount points in fstab, it is possible that those symbolic links will not exist when localmount starts and attempts to mount them. The recommended solution is to convert fstab from using "/dev/disk/by-*" to the LABEL=, UUID=, or PARTUUID= syntax. This syntax is supported directly by both util-linux and busybox's mount commands and has no dependency on any device manager. More information on this syntax can be found in the fstab(5) and mount(8) man pages. To force the old behaviour, instead of converting fstab, you can add rc_want="dev-settle" to /etc/conf.d/localmount or add udev-settle to the sysinit runlevel.
