be using - according to the disk naming. The command you need is
/dev/vzfs on / type vzfs (rw)
/dev/simfs on /tmp type simfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec)
/dev/simfs on /var/tmp type simfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec)
none on /proc type proc (rw,nosuid,noexec,nodiratime)
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
none on /sys type sysfs (rw)
none on /dev type tmpfs (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw)
( this is off one of my VPSes - CentOS but no matter ).
You can see that bothe /tmp and /var/tmp are mounted noexec. This can
cause problems when install scripts want to spawn more processes.
