Re: Filesystems Not Mounting

This is from Fedora 7. A week old install.

A little history:
      Was running Fedora 6 with all available fixes via yum without any
      issues (this included Sun Java and Oracle 10g Enterprise database).
      I performed a clean install on this same machine of Fedora 7.  But I
      had the same filesystem issues so I went back to Fedora 6.
      Later I performed a clean install on this machine of Fedora 8. But
      with the Sun Java and Oracle database issues, I fell back to Fedora
      Now - After the EOL for Fedora 6 was announced and I saw no
      resolution for the Oracle and Java issues, I did a clean install of
      Fedora 7.

What version of Fedora are you running? I have never seen mounting a
 file system manually produce changes in /etc/fstab. I do remember
that auto-mounting drives back in FC5 (FC4?) used to produce a
temporary entry in /etc/fstab when you hot-plugged a drive, but even
then manually mounting a file system would not produce an entry in
/etc/fstab. (It would in /etv/mtab...) So I suspect that the entries
were created some other way.

I am not seeing what the problem is. You say IT all works fine on FC6. But you tried both F7 and F8 and you were not able to mount some file systems. Now where are these file systems now?

If they are on FC6 I should think you can cp -a from FC6 to F8 any file system you want.

You are talking about /etc/fstab and it has NOTHING to do with file systems. Fstab is used to connect whole partitions to a main part.

So please some details. Are you trying to move your Orical data base directories to F8? That will not work. Orical has files all over the FC6 file system.
