Default Bug#626478: nfs-common: Please build mount.nfs with libmount support

Package: nfs-common
Version: 1:1.2.3-1
Severity: normal

Hi,

With mount (util-linux) 2.19.1 in experimental, libmount.so.1 is
provided for use by mount helpers such as mount.nfs. [the next
upload will include proper libmount-dev and libmount1 packages;
it's currently in util-linux]

It would be great if mount.nfs could be built with libmount support.
This is needed for removal of /etc/mtab (symlink to /proc/mounts) and
r/o root.

While I don't follow upstream development too closely, the patches
were posted to the list, and are in use in Fedora. You can find them
here:
http://git.linux-nfs.org/?p=steved/nfs-utils.git;a=commitdiff;h=c01e5ca6179b8f5b041605d9b bd75a0f76812d54
http://git.linux-nfs.org/?p=steved/nfs-utils.git;a=commitdiff;h=a99269230a0e77e7bed4fa31c 9547f0d61c7f206

Once util-linux gains the libmount-dev package, it would be great
if we could have nfs-utils building against it with
--enable-libmount-mount; experimental would be fine for testing
purposes since that's where util-linux is the for the time being.


Thanks,
Roger

Just to let you know, util-linux 2.19.1 is now in unstable, along
with libmount-dev/libmount1 packages. If the patches are not yet
in a new nfs-utils release, they are obtainable from upstream git
as detailed above.

Roger
