/dev Rebuilt During Boot?
Authored by: stomper on Nov 07, '01 03:54:14PM

Me too. I've moved my swap to another partition (/Volumes/Swap) and It works fine for two or three reboots. Then all of a sudden one of my total 8 volumes (4+4 on 2 disks) mount as "/Volumes/Swap 1", the swap file is created on that volume and the rest gets messed up. For now I've reverted back to default again until further light can be shed on this issue.

/dev Rebuilt During Boot?

I moved mine last weekend and haven't noticed any problems. I did use niload to enter the mounts in Netinfo Manager ... ie

sudo niload -m fstab / < /etc/fstab

There's man pages for "niload" ... I wonder if making NI aware of the mounts solves the problem?

Interesting idea. I had planned on giving it a try, but it looks like the 10.1.1 update automagically fixed the odd behavior on my system. <shrug>

If it happens again, I'll try your fix.

/dev Rebuilt During Boot?
Authored by: dsauve on Nov 14, '01 07:36:55PM

This morning I rebooted remotely using 'shutdown' and one of my partitions didn't mount. This is the first time I saw this happen. I did a 2nd shutdown and all the mounts booted up fine. I wonder if 'shutdown' is the culprit -- if the reboot process isn't the same as a reboot after selecting Restart from the apple menu.

I only question the command because I noticed that my Display settings are screwed up after a 'shutdown' -- implying that something isn't correctly loaded -- and it requires a clean reboot to get the Displays to show the correct refresh rates, etc.

Point is, the niload trick isn't perfect.

If /sbin/shutdown is the culprit, then we're back to the "OS X's automounter does funny things with /dev" line again. Maybe someone who follows the Darwin groups, has some free time, and wouldn't mind could float the question and report back...?
