Problems with unionfs

Bug #140442 reported by SurJector on 2007-09-17
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux-meta (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-image-generic

I've downloaded and tried Kubuntu daily snapshot (it should be 20070914). I have observed the following problems which look related to unionfs:

1) apt-get install won't work unless I do the following:
cp -a /var/cache/apt /tmp
mount -o bind /tmp/apt /var/cache/apt

2) python install crashed with a kernel oops in what looked like an unionfs function.

I find it worth signalling that, under kubuntu Feisty, cvs fails because it cannot determine its current directory:

cognac ~/c/pari % cvs update
cvs [update aborted]: cannot get working directory: No such file or directory

 (there is a possible workaround using mount -o bind, but it's not very clean...).
