Autofs NG Publisher's description
Autofs NG is an autofs automounter for Linux that strives to be interoperable.
Autofs NG is a Linux automounter that is intended to be completely interoperable with autofs implementations on other Unix platforms. As such, it supports some features that the current Linux automounters do not.
This includes direct mounts, /net (--hosts access), lazy mounting and unmounting of hierarchical multimounts, and browsing. Autofsng also supports the usual indirect map support available elsewhere.
Maps are supported from flat files, executable maps, NIS maps, NIS+ maps, LDAP maps, and hesiod (DNS) filsys namespace.
AutofsNG was originally developed at Sun Microsystems, but has been cancelled as a project. Fortunately, it has been released as GPL, so I am continuing it's development in my spare time.
What's New in This Release:?пїЅ Initscript fixup for path to /proc/mounts
?пїЅ We no longer update /etc/mtab because the kernel does all unmounting. Current recommendation is to symlink /proc/mounts to /etc/mtab if you want to see the what is actually mounted with calling mount
?пїЅ Fixed SuSE/LSB initscript issue where ypbind wasn't
System Requirements:No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
