eikesauer commented Oct 18, 2015 Thanks MagicFab & meden, you saved my installation! (I'm sure it is totally undesirable and probably even impossible to boot up a system if /etc/mtab exists.)

I am not sure I understand why Ubuntu still runs into issues with this all... /etc/mtab is dead since 4+ years, and there are still up-to-date Ubuntu systems around with it
systemd member poettering commented Oct 9, 2015 I dropped some parts of the mtab crap (not the boot-time halt though) with #1516...

Rants apart, an hint to recover broken systems for those using Grub and stumble upon this bug report: at the boot menu, modify the boot entry on linux command line adding I really don't get why this is popping up now on Ubuntu.

Hard link have some interesting problems if you are not aware of them. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=95063 Re: /etc/mtab is missing But I cannot create /etc/mtab. I heard that rescue-mode provided by the alternate CD can solve it.(Downloading it...) Is there any other way? karelzak commented Oct 9, 2015 The current (in-git tree) libmount monitor does not check for the mtab file anymore, but it's not released yet.
