autofs-4.1.3-104 will not fall through wildcard in maps.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:06 EST
Description of problem: The autofs proposed for RHEL3 U5 will not fall through
a wildcard in an indirect map looking for a more specific entry. Entries which
appear in autofs before the wildcard will be correctly used, but the wildcard
will match everything after it, which mean later entries will never get checked.
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up local files like
2. cd to /home/broken
Actual results: the /home/broken tries to mount nfs.server:/export/catchall/broken
Expected results: the /home/broken should mount
Additional info: notice that the entry before the wildcard does work.
/home/working actually does mount nfs.server:/export/working/directory.

Patch to allow fallthrough
Verified that the patch works and that's all that is needed. The fix will be
built into the next autofs RHEL3 build.
Fix is in autofs-4.1.3-112.
