Today I learned as a result of reading NeddySeagoon’s reply on this thread on the Gentoo forums, that
If you chroot into a new stage tarball and run the
df command there will be an error until either:
/proc/mountsare copied to
/proc/mountsare symlinked to
The latter option is the better option since, as long as proc updates, it will keep the
mtab file dynamic.
I also learned:
If you install grub manually - not using grub install, then /etc/mtab is not consulted. The manual install is documented in the handbook
I will start posting more ‘Today I learned’ entires, as they should be a helpful aid for me for look back on in the future.
