Does the wrong thing with (a) user and (b) loop mounts. [I just tested 2.6.16-1-k7.] /etc/mtab needs to keep enough state for umount to know (a) who mounted something, so the same user can unmount it, and (b) that a loop device was set up automatically via 'mount -o loop', rather than done separately, so that umount can 'losetup -d /dev/loopN'. This is information which cannot, at present, be put in /proc/mounts. > 2) Link /etc/resolv.conf to /var or install resolvconf package. > 3) Link /etc/network/run to /dev/shm/ Wait, didn't /run get created at some point? Did that get reverted, and if so, why?
