Since performing the Sabayon-weekly updates, on 21st April 2013, my system displays the following message during boot up:
Code: Select all
mount.nilfs2: cannot modify /etc/mtab.
Please remount the partition with -f option after making /etc/mtab writable.
nilfs_cleanerd not started
Checking the most recent archive log of rc.log, /var/log/rc.log-20130421.gz, I see the message did not appear prior to the recent updates making me wonder if this may be a new system bug? Could someone advise, as I am not knowledgeable enough in that area to know. I presume this may be preventing garbage collection on the nilfs partitions at present.
is symlinked to /proc/self/mounts
both are read only and the owner and group are myself and not root, I do not know what the settings should be, but I had expected mtab
to be writeable and owned by root?
is provided by the nilfs-utils
package which may be due a version bump soon).
