I'm trying to install an rpm package:

rpm -i rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm

And got this via strace:

I'm on CentOS 5.7 64-bit:

2.6.18-274.18.1.el5 #1 SMP

is it just this one rpm, or all ? As the rpmforge rpm just adds a little bit to yum.repos.d you could do it manually easy enough. – Sirex Mar 6 '12 at 10:01
It happens on all rpm's. It's just an example. – Spacedust Mar 6 '12 at 10:06
/proc/mounts seems to be messed up. Can you post it entirely? – AndreasM Mar 6 '12 at 12:22 - it looks strange to me - how can I fix this ? – Spacedust Mar 6 '12 at 13:33
I found this in /etc/rc.local which is incorrect - ln -s /dev/md2 /dev/root – Spacedust Mar 6 '12 at 13:46
