25 I would do a 'rc single' then use lsof for /home to see what if anything
26 is still going on. I think with openrc, when you go to single user it
27 unmounts about everything, tho this could have changed since it has been
28 a while since I went to single user. Oh, I have had issues going from
29 single user back to default mode. It just doesn't work right. So, be
30 ready to reboot if needed.
32 I ran into a weird issue one time a long time ago. It turned out it was
33 the order I had them in fstab. I think I had /usr/portage above /usr so
34 as it went down the file, it was trying to mount /usr/portage then
35 trying to mount /usr. I thought it rather odd, maybe a bug even, but
36 changing the order made it work. Do you maybe have something in a odd
37 order in fstab?
39 Well, it's early and I am still half asleep. Hope that helps. Going
40 back to bed. To wet to go hunting this morning, sleeting too. Brrrrrr!
