Redhat aliases cp,mv,rm to their -i version to protect users from
themselves. I took them out long ago so I don't remember where they were
set initially. But I would go through /etc/profile /etc/bashrc ~/.bashrc
~/.bash_profile and remove the offending lines if present.
Personally I like the -i option; the complaint I have is that
sometimes I do not seem to be able to disable it with unalias.
I would also then go to /etc/skel and remove them if you don't want new
users to deal with this as well.
With 2.4 you can mount a partition in multiple places, so no more
complaints about already being mounted.
Thank you for this, you seem to be supporting my memory, which is
comforting. As I indicated in another response, the entries were
ghosts, probably caused by code that does not clean-up properly.
