You have /dev/tmpMnt mounted on /tmp and /tmp mounted on /var/tmp.

You think that's what you want?

Hi,

The correct answer kind of depends on what you want. As Kdr Kane has pointed out (although not very verbose), your output is very unusual, not only because of the repetitions. You have /tmp listed in the first column, which means that it is treated as a hard-disk or similar device. This is bad, because it isn't it is a directory.

I do not know of any distribution that organises things this way, so my first guess would be to suspect a human error. Please reboot and see if the situation improves. Basically, /tmp should not be mounted on /var/tmp. That is the problem you should go after. Not the repetition issue. (if you issue the "mount" command, you'll see that it also repeats, so it isn't even df specific.

Groetjes,

Kees-Jan
