Hey Andrew,

This could probably cause flawed mountdetection of the rootdevice on
some debiansystems.. (if they run kernel 2.5/2.6 and there's no
real-root-dev) I'll look into it . Expect a patch soon.

Btw, remember the frontend i mentioned? I've constructed an webpage
which can be found at gparted.sourceforge.net. I'm ready to do some
releases, but i need the mount-checking in libparted fixed, when do you
think 1.6.12 will be released? Or is there an CVS i could point my users



PS. now you know why i'm zo zealous about mount-checking, i need it for
my software :-P
