I applied the devfs patch to the kernel 2.2.16-22 (RedHat Linux 7)
installed the new kernel, modified lilo.conf, ran lilo and rebooted
the system with the option "devfs=nomount". The system is able to
mount the root file system in readonly mode. But after that when
it tries to do fsck to the root file system before mounting
it in "rw" mode, it fails. Looks like devfs seems to be
having a problem with my /etc/fstab. My /etc/fstab has device names
specified in the "LABEL=.." format. Does devfs understand LABEL=..
format ? or I need to change the device names to something like /dev/sdd.. ?
Any help is appreciated.
