Package: live-initramfs
Severity: important
Tags: patch

The udev-script in scripts/init-bottom/ on the ramdisk created for live-initramfs seems to
use an deprecated syntax for the mount-call:

mount -n -o move /dev $rootmnt/dev

This will cause the booting live system to abort with a kernel-panic (mount complaining
with "You must specify the filesystem-type").

Unpacking the ramdisk, replacing the above line with:

mount --move /dev $rootmnt/dev

fixed it and the live-system will boot properly.

The initrd I used was created by "make-fai-nfsroot" in the fai-server-package, but the fai-maintainers
told me this would rather be a bug in "live-initramfs", so I post it here.

to summarise:

  * live-initramfs never had any scripts in init-bottom.

  * the scripts/live script uses correct mount options for the included
    mount program inside the initramfs.

  * i cannot reproduce any panic with live images.

  * i cannot reporoduce any "You must specify the filesystem-type"
    message at boot time.

therefore, I'm closing this bug. feel free to reopen if you have
evidence for the bug with current systems.

also, if there is no standard way of generating an image where it
happens (e.g. when not using live-helper), consider providing a test
image so that a particular image can be debugged.
