Re: Bonehead Move, noexec

Hi Ulrich -

Try that on a rawhide system.  There was a kernel bad which Linus
finally fixed in the 2.6.19 (or .20?) kernels.

It isn't "fixed" on the current FC6 2.6.19 kernel FWIW.

Partitions are terribly useful.  There several useful mount flags:

  noatime, noexec, nodev, nosuid
...
If anything, people should use more partitions, not less.

Why should fracturing your storage like a broken mirror have anything to do with application of what are basically ACLs. Why is smashing the mirror into more smaller pieces any kind of good idea. Partitions in the sense of reserving chunks of storage can only mean that you mismanage your storage in one section or another and run short. The only situation that is optimal is everything sharing a single allocation. It seems to me it is another "bad" that in order to get the granular ACL benefits you mention, for some reason you currently have to use a stupid static reservation scheme.
