Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 122162
(PATCH)No bind mounts without NFS export
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:41 EST
Running autofs-4.1.2-2 from FC2T3 I found that I cannot access a mount
map entry like:
unless the NFS server is running and /path/blah is exported. This
worked under FC1 and as far back as I can recall autofs being available.
I reported this upstream and it was confirmed as a bug. The attached
patch was sent to me by raven at themaw.net; I tweaked the autofs spec
file to apply the patch, rebuilt the package and installed it. My
problem is solved.
I'll leave it to you to decide whether this merits fixing for FC2; I
can always use my local packages.

Patch to fix get_best_mount to not call rpc_ping for local mounts
I've posted an updated package on my people page for testing. It is
the autofs maintainers version of this fix, along with a fix for
multi-mounts. Would you mind trying it? The version is 4.1.2-4. If
enough people test and report success, I will move this into rawhide.
Sorry, forgot to post a pointer to the package:
I have verified that stock FC2 still has this problem, but that the
4.1.2-6 package from the above URL fixes things.
This is fixed in FC3t1; let's see if I can close the bug.
