Subject: [gentoo-user] Output of "mount" and "cat /etc/mtab" inside install chroot?
Date: Sat, 19 Apr 2014 11:43:37
1 I've got another thread going called...
2 "Strange behaviour with LILO on new install on old laptop". Before I
3 file a bug report, I want to check first whether it's my fault. Can
4 people here do me a favour? If you have a Gentoo install CD or USB key
5 handy, and are willing to reboot, can you please do the following...
7 1) boot from the install ISO
8 2) chroot to a running environment
9 3) list the output from the 2 commands
10 mount
11 cat /etc/mtab
13 I'm getting absolutely no output at all from those 2 commands in the
14 install chroot. That screws up the lilo ebuild install process. I want
15 to check whether blank /etc/mtab is my fault or not.
