mountall checks all available block devices, LVM volumes and MD RAID devices and tries to
automatically mount them. Filesystems are autodetected and default options used. They are all
/mnt with their device names, so for example
When mountall detects that a filesystem contains the directories
guesses that the partition is a root partition for a Linux system. It then bind-mounts these
directories from System Rescue into it. This helps when chrooting into the path: many common
rpm, require these directories to be available and populated.
You can disable this behavior with the
mountall - mount all suitable block devices Usage: mountall [-n|--no-bind] [-v|--verbose] --no-bind Don't try to bind-mount /dev /proc and /sys when the partition has these dirs --verbose Verbose output.
