root partition listed twice in df

Postby deviceguru on Sat Jun 02, 2012 12:36 pm

When I do a df on my LMDE 201204 system, I get two instances of the root partition showing up. That wouldn't be so bad, except the second instance has the UUID in the line and makes for a very ugly display. Any easy fix for this?

Here's the output from a "df -h" command:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
rootfs 19G 7.1G 11G 40% /
udev 1009M 0 1009M 0% /dev
/dev/disk/by-uuid/86f34264-ec8d-4da7-bd63-4ebf9d9b4da7 19G 7.1G 11G 40% /
tmpfs 203M 856K 202M 1% /var/run
tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /var/run/lock
tmpfs 406M 72K 406M 1% /tmp
tmpfs 406M 72K 406M 1% /var/run/shm

And here's what "mount" reports:

udev on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,relatime,size=1032688k,nr_inodes=219511,mode=755)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,nosuid,noexec,relatime,gid=5,mode=620,ptmxmode=000)

fusectl on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw,relatime)
binfmt_misc on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)
cgroup on /dev/cgroup/cpu type cgroup (rw,relatime,cpu,release_agent=/usr/local/sbin/cgroup_clean)

Is there something I should change in fstab (or elsewhere) to alter df's behavior?
