When booting a RedHat system with softraid, the linuxrc script looks
something like this:
echo "Loading raid1 module"
mount -t proc /proc /proc
echo Mounting /proc filesystem
echo Creating root device
echo 0x0100 > /proc/sys/kernel/real-root-dev
echo Mounting root filesystem
mount --ro -t xfs /dev/root /sysroot
pivot_root /sysroot /sysroot/initrd
The mount command is a builtin command of /bin/nash, maybe this explains
the different behaviour. I hope one of the gurus can explain it to us.
