Boot mount errors - partitions busy or already mounted
 
Hello,

I decided to look at my /var/log/boot.msg today and see if I could improve anything, for fun. Then I saw the following:


Code:

Mounting local file systems...
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
debugfs on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=0620,gid=5)
mount: /dev/sda6 already mounted or /home busy
mount: /dev/sda8 already mounted or /img busy
mount: /dev/sda9 already mounted or /VM busy
mount: /dev/sda7 already mounted or /tmp busy

mount: special device /dev/disk/by-label/USB16GBFAT does not exist
failedRetry device configurationdone
Loading fuse module done
Mounting fuse control filesystemdone

The USB16GBFAT does not exist is normal, my USB stick is rarely connected at boot.
Other than SWAP, i've got 5 partitions, sda1, sda6, sda7, sda8 and sda9. SDA1 being /.

I have all of them in my fstab file with mount options.

Code:

/dev/sda1 /              ext3      defaults,noatime                                          0 1
/dev/sda6 /home                xfs        defaults,noatime,logbufs=8                        0 2
/dev/sda8 /img                  ext3      acl,user_xattr,noatime,data=writeback        0 2
/dev/sda9 /VM                    xfs        defaults,noatime,logbufs=8                        0 2
/dev/sda7 /tmp                  xfs        defaults,noatime,logbufs=8                        0 2
/dev/sda5 swap                  swap      defaults                                                            0 0
proc                /proc            proc      defaults                                                              0 0

usbfs              /proc/bus/usb          usbfs        noauto                                        0 0
devpts            /dev/pts                    devpts      mode=0620,gid=5                        0 0
LABEL=USB16GBFAT    /media/USB16GB          vfat            uid=1000,gid=100                  0 0

Looking at SUDO MOUNT command to see which partitions are mounted:

Code:

/dev/sda1 on / type ext3 (rw,noatime)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
debugfs on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=0620,gid=5)
fusectl on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw)
securityfs on /sys/kernel/security type securityfs (rw)

None but sda1 root!
I don't understand.

But my system boots fine. I have all my partitions after booting. I run every day with no issue at all, though any of my SDA partitions are listed in MOUNT command.

What is happening?
Why during boot sequence it cannot mount my partitions?
Why they are mounted (obviously cuz I use them every day) but don't show as being mounted in sudo mount command?
Is there a ghost (or angel, cuz I run flawlessly) in my 10.3 installation?
Do I really have my partitions mounted with the options I selected in fstab?
Is something gonna screw up sooner or later cuz nothing shows in mount command?
Am I at risk somehow?

I use openSUSE 10.3.
I have checked under vmware using openSUSE 11.0 and I don't get those error lines in my boot.msg. Also I do get the SDA partitions listed in the sudo mount command of my openSUSE 11.0 installation (which I don't use for every day stuff).

tnx a lot for any help!
