mountall(8)						      System Manager's Manual						       mountall(8)

NAME
mountall - Mount filesystems during boot SYNOPSIS
mountall [OPTIONS]... DESCRIPTION
mountall reads fstab(5) and calls fsck(8), mount(8) and swapon(8) in the correct order to mount filesystems once the underlying devices have been created by udevd(8). This is a temporary tool until init(8) itself gains the necessary flexibility to perform this processing; you should not rely on its behav- iour. OPTIONS
--daemon Detach and run in the background. --force-fsck Force check of all filesystems. --fsck-fix Attempt to fix all fsck errors. --no-events Do not emit events after mounting filesystems. --dev-wait-time=value (in seconds) In case of bootwait or timeout: specify the time to wait for device to be detected. The default is 30 seconds. Legal values are between 1 and 2147483647 seconds. -q, --quiet Reduce output to errors only. -v, --verbose Increase output to include informational messages. --help Display this help and exit. --version Output version information and exit.

NAME
virtual-filesystems - event signalling that virtual filesystems have been mounted SYNOPSIS
virtual-filesystems [ENV]... DESCRIPTION
The virtual-filesystems event is generated by the mountall(8) daemon after it has mounted all virtual filesystems listed in fstab(5). mountall(8) emits this event as an informational signal, services and tasks started or stopped by this event will do so in parallel with other activity. This event is typically used by services that must be started in order to mount other filesystems. When this event occurs, common filesys- tems such as /usr may not be mounted. For most normal services the filesystem(7) event is sufficient. EXAMPLE
A service that wishes to be running once virtual filesystems are mounted might use: start on virtual-filesystems SEE ALSO
