[SOLVED] Fedora 15 df -h duplicate/double Mount Point Bug ???

Hi Friends,

I was very much excited to Install Fedora 15 on my Laptop, Installed it Successfully and Working fine, Shortly I am going to post steps to Install Fedora 15.

There is a 1 more reason for Excitement to Install Fedora 15 is GNOME 3. First Screen is Fantastic. I just liked it so much. Very Nice Graphics.

Exact after Installing Fedora 15, I just opened Terminal and Execute df -h guess what ??? I came to know about the Bug on Just First command. Got little bit disappointed, because df -h shows duplicate mount points. Don’t worry, Google Helped me to solve the issue.

OUTPUT looks like follow :-

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
rootfs                 49G  4.7G   41G  11% /
udev                  490M     0  490M   0% /dev
tmpfs                 498M  560K  497M   1% /dev/shm
tmpfs                 498M  668K  497M   1% /run
/dev/sda2              49G  4.7G   41G  11% /
tmpfs                 498M  136K  497M   1% /sys/fs/cgroup
tmpfs                 498M     0  498M   0% /media
/dev/sda1             485M   31M  430M   7% /boot
/dev/sda2              49G  4.7G   41G  11% /tmp
/dev/sda2              49G  4.7G   41G  11% /var/tmp
/dev/sda3              49G  4.7G   41G  11% /tejas-barot
/dev/sda3              49G  4.7G   41G  11% /tejas-barot

In Above output you can see that it is showing multiple mount points, Duplicate mount points into df -h command.

TO SOLVE THIS ISSUE Execute Following Commands as root :-

#/etc/init.d/sandbox stop

# chkconfig sandbox off

# init 6

On Next reboot you will not see that duplicate mount points into df -h command. I don’t know the exact issue why this service is creating issue, but this is the way to solve, I am finding the thing for the same and will post it in details.

Hope this helps you guys, Waiting for your comment.

Enjoy Fedora 15 🙂 Enjoy Linux 🙂 Enjoy Open Source 🙂


Fedora 15 Released | Linux | Open Source

Hello,

Fedora Linux 15 is now available, providing users on the desktop with a full GNOME 3 experience including the GNOME Shell user interface.

Fedora 15, codenamed ‘Lovelock’ also introduces new security, spin, networking and virtualization features to the community Linux project, sponsored by Red Hat.

“GNOME Shell is a big change and I’d be doing people a disservice if I didn’t say that GNOME 3 and GNOME Shell is a fairly radical departure from the GNOME 2 experience,” Jared Smith, Fedora Project Leader told InternetNews.com. “That being said, a lot of people find the change refreshing.”

GNOME 3 as an upstream project was officially released in April and Fedora 15 is the first major Linux distro to include it as part of the core release. Smith noted that GNOME Shell was designed to have fewer interruptions for users and enable users to more easily access their data and applications.

The GNOME Shell is not something that everyone in the Linux community likes. Rival Linux distribution Ubuntu split with GNOME for their 11.04 release and released their own Unity user interface as a competitive alternative to GNOME 3. Smith noted that for Fedora users that don’t have the graphics hardware to run the GNOME Shell, there is a fallback mode that includes the gnome-panel, metacity and a notification-daemon.
