Default Bug#603858: Mount options for proc conflict with /etc/fstab breaking /etc/init.d/mountall.sh

Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.93.4
Severity: critical
File: /usr/share/initramfs-tools/init
Tags: patch


I recently installed a squeeze system. The generated /etc/fstab
contains the following line:

# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

But in /usr/share/initramfs-tools/init you have:

mount -t proc -o nodev,noexec,nosuid none /proc

This causes mount to return an error when mounting all local
filesystems because "proc" and "none" are different divices and it
can't mount /proc again over an existing mountpoint. The
/etc/init.d/mountall.sh script reports a red FAILED because of that.

Node: /etc/mtab is a link to /proc/mounts here. That might affect this

Please change the mount command for proc to:

mount -t proc -o nodev,noexec,nosuid proc /proc
