Question Fedora 17, got 2 mount entries from df for /

On my Fedora 17 box, the / has 2 entries:

[root@cos vncu]# df
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
rootfs 25564448 5191308 20117184 21% /
devtmpfs 1961100 0 1961100 0% /dev
tmpfs 2003876 84 2003792 1% /dev/shm
tmpfs 2003876 1796 2002080 1% /run
/dev/sda1 25564448 5191308 20117184 21% /
tmpfs 2003876 0 2003876 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
tmpfs 2003876 0 2003876 0% /media

I suspect this is not right and is the cause of problem of frequest filesystem corruption.

But I can't find why it gets 2 entries.

No that's normal, rootfs is part of the kernel's virtual file system.

For reasons I don't understand it has a physical and a virtual entry.

also "wzis" it is WAY past the time to upgrade
Fedora 17 went end of life 6 months ago
fedora 18 will be going end of life in a week or so
ONLY fedora 19 and 20 are supported

PLEASE stay current and do a new clean install of fedora 20
you can NOT upgrade from fedora 17 to 20
you need to do a new install

@John VV is right - so I finally took his advice.
I have a separate /home partition, so the (clean) reinstall using my old userid was simple enough (not as intuative as say Ubuntu, but workable), and nice and quick.

Do it - maybe. Looks like PackageKit could do with some polishing.
