mounting davfs fails #507
On Debian 8.
systemd uses "-n" mount option. This is not understood by davfs and mounting fails.
Mount unit is created by fstab entry (systemd-fstab-generator(8)).
Journal (sorry output is partially german):
Mounting manually works.
Should I report to davfs instead ?
Thx for your reply!
Well as mentioned it's Debian 8 stable, so should I report there ?
Could it use something else than mount for this maybe ?
It seems like mount.davfs bug.
The option "-n" is part of the mount helper API; see man mount, section EXTERNAL HELPERS.
@poettering BTW, why we need to execute mount(8) with -n (--no-mtab) if manager->running_as == MANAGER_SYSTEM?
We don't use /ect/mtab at all, and user-space staff is stored in /run/mount which is tmpfs. The option -n has been originally used by init scripts to call mount(8) on read-only root fs.
