mount: LABEL =/boot duplicate - not mounted

Mounting other filesystems : mount: LABEL =/boot duplicate - not mounted

This error is displayed on initial startup, and has been ever since I installed RH 9, I was wondering if this could be resolved.

I think it is because Linux is seeing through my Raid 1 device, and sees that I have two identical hard drives. If this is the case, is there any way that I can disable this message, or make linux not see through my raid device, so that it sees just one hard drive.

When I go into disk manager, it shows two seperate discs, but as I have not mounted one, this ahs not caused any problems, Windows sees just the one, so I know that it is not the RAID that is at fault.

I have a highpoint ata-100 on board raid controller, and am running KDE on RH 9.

My boot is now taking significantly longer on installing "cups", is this related?

Thanks for any help in advance.

Look in /etc/fstab for more than one entry with "LABEL=/boot"

Compare the contents of that file with the output of "mount" after a successful boot.

My contents of fstab only have one instance of "LABEL=boot", althogh when looking at the hardware browser it can see both hard disks.

Looking at fstab it is mounting:

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tnofs defaults 0 0

Thanks for your help so far, at least I now know where to look

then all the /dev/

type the cmd dmesg or less /var/log/message these to things are the logs that are produced during boot up this should indicate what fails and what is successful during boot up see if you are able to find the error u mentioned and post it to us.

also post the ouput of the following cmd fdisk -l

If you want to keep the partition labels then change fstab from label=/boot to the actual partition ID i.e. /dev/hdxy.

Use tune2fs to change the partition label.

I wouldn't the cups problem would be related to the slow boot.
