Intermittent problems mounting /home
My /etc/fstab is as follows:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system=""><mount point=""><type><options><dump><pass>proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/xvda / ext3 noatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1 /dev/xvdb none swap sw 0 0 /dev/xvdc /home ext3 defaults 0 2</pass></dump></options></type></mount></file>
The problem is that intermittently the mount of /dev/xvdc on /home fails. Here's the startup script output when that happens:
fsck from util-linux 2.20.1 /dev/xvda: clean, 65383/5690496 files, 1438641/5701632 blocks mountall: Disconnected from Plymouth fsck from util-linux 2.20.1 fsck.ext3: Device or resource busy while trying to open /dev/xvdc Filesystem mounted or opened exclusively by another program? mountall: fsck /home  terminated with status 8 mountall: Unrecoverable fsck error: /home mountall: Skipping mounting /home since Plymouth is not available
Any ideas what could be going on?
I just switched back to having /home be a directory on the root partition rather than a separate partition.
