Description Walter 2013-01-27 21:31:07 UTC
Under LXC one might typically mount /run and /tmp as tmpfs from the host environment.

OpenRC should probably avoid the two processes in bootmisc titled "Cleaning /var/run..." and "Wiping /tmp directory..." if they are tmpfs-mounted.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot within LXC with /run and /tmp tmpfs-mounted

Actual Results:  
Needless processes execute.

Expected Results:  
No such processes execute.

If you take the view that it's safer to just wipe these things and the processes  should run anyway, in the case that either location is already empty then at least OpenRC could then avoid executing these processes.

A fix for this has been implemented in commit 1831e43 and will be in
