Re: Mutex error

And this can be triggered by adding one of the following in /etc/rc.conf:

fsck_flags="-y -P"

In case of -P (and if the filesystem is dirty), a nice progress bar is show but if I type y to fix errors I get this mutex error. In case of "-y -P" and "-y" I get this mutex error. Not defining fsck_flags in rc.conf makes the boot successful. It seems this "assume yes as the answer to all operator questions" does something bad.

I'd say the "-y" have nothing to do with it.
It's the "fixing" stage which have a problem. How you get there (using -y, or answering "y" to the question) obviously don't matter.

If you don't have any flags, it won't do much, and especially not try to fix any problems, and then you don't crash.
