hello list,

i've created a liveCD (using mklivecd) that works well, except that
I'm having problems
with mounting ffs or lfs. I've used the sources from August 30 (4.99.30).
When I try to mount an lfs or ffs partition I'm getting always "device busy"
Other mounts like nfs, tmpfs or ptyfs are not affected and working well.

To get an impression, please download the liveCD from

A ktruss revealed nothing useful. The problem seems to be related to the
liveCD only, since my workstation using the same sources have no
problems at all.

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks, Zafer.
