I think partman should not create /var/run & /var/lock
at all at this point. Note the comment right before
# Create these before /var is mounted,
# so that they can be mounted as tmpfses
- mkdir -p /target/var/lock
- mkdir -p /target/var/run
+ mkdir -p /target/run
In previous life, there was a hack to mount /var/run &
/var/lock as tmpfs, and it was done BEFORE /var is
mounted! Ie, once real /var gets mounted, it hides
run & lock dirs below itself. The code in initscripts
tried to move /var/run and /var/lock elsewhere before
mounting /var, and to move them back after mounting /var.
Hence, /var/lock and /var/run should exist in root
filesystem even if separate /var is being used, --
these directories wont be created later during install
after we mount /target/var since it will hide the root
This whole hack is not needed anymore, and /run will
be created in a usual way during install process.
So this whole trick should be removed.
