How is /fastboot created?

Post by upnort » 2018/10/03 16:31:42

I have a lone CentOS 6 container running on a Proxmox host. Recently the container started creating /fastboot. I have looked into where that file might be created and am clueless at this point.

While the file might be created by the host Proxmox, at this point I am presuming the file is created within CentOS. The file is being created both when I stop/start the container from Proxmox and when I run the reboot command from within the container.

This is a container, which of course means no kernel, no grub, etc.

What are the different ways this file is created?

Thanks again. :)

It's not anything I've ever heard of before. Running yum provides "*/fastboot" only lists /usr/bin/fastboot from the android-tools EPEL package. Google only returns hits about android when searched for "/fastboot" linux
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!

I finally traced this down to Proxmox.
