autofs fails to mount ext3 filesystems
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:43 EST
Description of problem:
The autofs automounter cannot mount ext3 filesystems. It claims
"filesystem needs repair, won't mount" even when the filesystem is clean.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Attempt to mount an ext3 filesystem which is mapped in an autofs map.
It will fail. An iso9660 filesystem works (i.e. a CD).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a line like this to /etc/auto.master:
/local /etc/auto.local --timeout 60
2. In /etc/auto.local, have a line like this:
l1 -fstype=ext3,rw :/dev/hda2
3. Make sure /dev/hda2 is clean by running fsck manually. Now try to
trigger automounting by changing to /local/l1.

filesystem needs repair, won't mount
May 24 02:17:52 XXXXX automount: failed to mount /local/l1
Filesystem is mounted.
Try autofs-4.1.2-6 from:
Excellent, that worked. Thanks!
Can this be pushed out as a fix, then? Thanks.
FC4 has version autofs 4.1.4. FC2 is no longer supported
