Bug ID: 1017683
Summary: /var/run should not be separate filesystem from /run
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Tumbleweed
Version: Current
Hardware: Other
OS: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Installation
Assignee: yast2-maintainers@xxxxxxx

Tumbleweed installation allows (like all other Suse versions) to create /tmp,
/run, /var/lock and /var/run as separate tmpfs filesystems.

Recently (sometime on last November) Tumbleweed behaviour changed so that many
things don't work or are very slow, if /run and /var/run are separate. See
for more info.

Solution for experienced problems was to remove entry for /var/run from
/etc/fstab and leave bind mounting /var/run to /run for systemd boot process.

If using btrfs, there is no sense creating /var/run as subvolume, as it either
is not used (overridden by bind mount) or it hides bind mount causing all sorts
of problems described of which some were described in separate forum post, see
link above.
