Description Steve Dum 2000-08-11 17:56:07 EDT
The autofs script has been 'enhanced' in 6.9 to remove
duplicate auto.master entries.  Nice idea, however, 
the implementation is faulty.  We have the following
entries in our yp auto.master (amoung others)

/users auto.users   -rw,hard,intr,noquota
/tools auto.project  -rw,hard,intr,noquota
/user auto.users   -rw,hard,intr,noquota
/home auto.users   -rw,hard,intr,noquota
/wv auto.wv    -rw,hard,intr,noquota
Since the code right now does a simple 
    "`echo "$knownmaps" | grep $dir`" = ""
rather than searching for duplicate entries, it searches 
for previous entries that contain the later string.

It was real surprising to see most of the mounts appear but
/user wouldn't mount.  (because /users was already a mount point.)

This should already be fixed in the latest Raw Hide refresh from the build tree.

Not True- Rawhide has 

which is the same version I have loaded.  It hasn't been fixed,
unless the package number didn't roll.
Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-08-11 18:57:51 EDT
As I marked in 15183, the bug was fixed in 4.0.0pre7-22.  Version 3.1.5-3 in
http://people.redhat.com/nalin/test/ also includes the fix.
