Subject: [gentoo-user] mounting /var prior to invocation of /sbin/rc
Date: Wed, 04 Nov 2009 09:48:13
1 Hi.
2 I've a setup where /var resides on a separate partition than root. After
3 boot, I see that /var is created on root and some files are written to
4 it. E.G, the following folders are created:
6 /var/lib/init.d/snapshot
7 /var/lib/init.d/options
8 /var/lib/init.d/daemons
9 /var/lib/init.d/started
10 /var/lib/init.d/starting
11 /var/lib/init.d/inactive
12 /var/lib/init.d/wasinactive
13 /var/lib/init.d/stopping
14 /var/lib/init.d/exclusive
15 /var/lib/init.d/exitcodes
16 /var/lib/init.d/scheduled
17 /var/lib/init.d/coldplugged
18 /var/lib/init.d/softscripts
20 I'm suspecting that /sbin/rc is writing to /var prior to the mounting of
21 the respective partition. Am I correct?
23 Is there some commonly-used place in gentoo for specifying partitions
24 that have to be mounted prior to writing a/m files?
26 10x,
