Cannot Lock Lock File /etc/mtab Timed Out

They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own. DistroUbuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx Re: /etc/mtab is missing OK, i got back the /etc/mtab after updating to Interpid and fsck the disk. Driver issue?

Password Linux - Newbie This Linux forum is for members that are new to Linux. The solution should be more generic (= useful for create_mtab() and for update_mtab()) I think the best way will be found a way how detect real place (FS) where is writeable Because I did a distro upgrade by just renewing repos and upgrading packages (zypper dup).

What, exactly, do you think is broken about the mtab locking? The patch is straight forward though.

The port settings are the same on all of my servers yet this one failed the nfs mount (this server is at a higher patch level than the other servers). Thanks and sorry for delay. Nevertheless, according to "man 5 nfs", SLES11SP2 should try to probe v4 first, so even without any options, you shouldn't see v3 requests first: nfsvers=n The NFS protocol version number used Have you tried renaming the home directory, recreating the user (creating a new home folder for the user)?

The /etc/mtab~ file is a lock file for mount, and mount should delete it itself. > Sylvain Briole wrote: > > > > Hello all, > > > > I this If no arguments are given to mount, this list is printed.

I think this is the reason why the mount util checks all things befor real mount(2). What is interesting, is that /etc/fstab can be opened (normally mounts are on folder-level, so fstab & mtab would be part of the same mounted filesystem, except if mount --bind were

I got this using KDE3 on the wife's laptop.

How can I do that? mount -t nfs etc.etc.etc. I would like to determine why this server is attempting to use NFS v3. Check This Out If this is your first visit, be sure to check out the FAQ.

I opened the file /etc/fsatb and added a line there: /dev/sda2 /mnt/Folder ntfs umask=000,defaults 0 0 5. Good luck. Attached patch defers the attempt to create /etc/mtab until after the mount has completed.

Code: /dev/sda1 / ext3 rw,relatime,errors=remount-ro 0 0 proc /proc proc rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev 0 0 /sys /sys sysfs rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev 0 0 varrun /var/run tmpfs rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,mode=0755 0 0 varlock /var/lock tmpfs rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,mode=1777 0 0

That'll solve the problem, but not the cause.

Its important. We used to see the problem of the mtab getting corrupted due to too many filesystems getting mounted within a short time frame. Good luck. Now save it as /etc/mtab.

The problems I'm having are (which don't have a separate thread): - I can't mount nor unmount any external drives (DBus error, /etc/mtab lock timed out) - Rebooting takes quite a Re: /etc/mtab is missing But I cannot create /etc/mtab.

Somewhat more testing would be required before raven> removing the locking from the distribution.
