    Subjectmount: / mounted already or bad option
    I have Gentoo linux in my PC
    I just installed the kernel 2.4.22 and compile it and install it (using
    genkernel command)
    Right now if I reboot my PC with my new kernel I got :
    mount: / mounted already or bad option
    and the system stop and ask me to type the root password
    and when I login with the root and type
    mount -o remount,rw /

    I got the same message
    mount: / mounted already or bad option

    but if I write
    mount -o remount,rw /dev/hda4 /
    then the root filesystem if remounted as read/write

    Anyway the stupid thing is that if I boot with my old kernel I don't get
    this problem !!!
    Any Help

    My /etc/fstab :

    /dev/hda2 /boot ext2 noauto,noatime
    1 1
    /dev/hda4 / reiserfs
    defaults,noatime,notail,iocharset=utf8 0 0
    /dev/hda3 none swap sw
    0 0
    /dev/hda1 /mnt/win ntfs
    auto,ro,umask=000,iocharset=utf0 0
    /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660
    noauto,ro,umask=000,iocharset=utf8 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy vfat
    noauto,defaults,umask=000,iocharset=utf8 0 0
    none /proc proc defaults
    0 0
    none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults
    0 0

    My /etc/lilo.conf :
    image = /boot/kernel-2.4.22
    root = /dev/hda4
    label = Gentoo
    append="root=/dev/hda4 init=/linuxrc hdc=ide-scsi"

    image = /boot/kernel-2.4.20-gentoo-r5
    root = /dev/hda4
    #root = /devices/discs/disc0/part3
    label = Old-Gentoo
    #read-only # read-only for checking
    append="root=/dev/hda4 init=/linuxrc hdc=ide-scsi"
