Is udev-mount really needed?

Postby Matte88 » Thu Mar 21, 2013 0:24

Continuing from here just to keep discussion clear and on its own.

What's happening with udev-mount? Is safe to remove it from runlevel (since it was not there before)?
Code: Select all
rc-service udev-mount describe
* mount devtmpfs on /dev
Code: Select all
cat /etc/mtab | grep udev
udev /dev devtmpfs rw,nosuid,relatime,size=10240k,nr_inodes=381156,mode=755 0 0
Code: Select all
cat /etc/fstab

I don't know, but I have it in the sysinit runlevel on my main laptop running up-to-date ~amd64 Gentoo:

Code: Select all
meshedgedx fitzcarraldo # rc-update show -v | grep udev
                 udev |                                        sysinit
           udev-mount |                                        sysinit

Code: Select all
meshedgedx fitzcarraldo # cat /etc/fstab
/dev/sda6    /                  ext4       user_xattr,noatime           1 1
/dev/sda7    /home              ext4       user_xattr,noatime           1 2
/dev/sda3    /boot              ext4       user_xattr,noatime,noauto    1 2
/dev/shm     /dev/shm           tmpfs      defaults                     0 0
/dev/sda5    swap               swap       defaults                     0 0
/dev/sda2    /media/Windows7    ntfs-3g    defaults                     0 0

Code: Select all
meshedgedx fitzcarraldo # cat /usr/src/linux/.config | grep DEVTMPFS

Read the following post in the Gentoo Forums, which I think I understand! Notice his Point 3, in particular. ... ml#7232480
