Re: FC3 + Updated Kernel (2.6.12-1.1372) + Lost /etc/mtab

Every time I see some kind of I/O error it was never a good sign.
If the actual /etc/mtab is gone, that's a bad sign. But then it might be as simple
as doing an fsck on the filesystem.


check the mount man page:
"it is possible to replace /etc/mtab by a symbolic link to /proc/mounts..."

Looking back at root mail, it seems this error may have been showing up
from early Sunday morning - after a power failure, shutdown and reboot -
during a cron attempt to update the slocate database.
