Description Marc MERLIN 1998-11-30 09:55:10 UTC
There are two lines like this one:
TMP1=`mktemp /tmp/autofs.XXXXXX` || { echo "could not make
temp file" >&2; exit 1; }

The default script is missing the last ';'. It works anyway
with bash 1.14 but fails with 2.x because it enforces the
This is not a bug for RH 5.2, but since you have bash 2.02
in rawhide, I suppose you're going to switch to the newer
bash and be bitten by this eventually.

There is also a problem with ifup-alias where
allow_null_glob_expansion has to be replaced with
shopt -(s|u) nullglob.
I don't know if you wish to receive reports like this one in
the future. Please advise.

BTW, the script (and many other for that matter) is also
the ';;' just before esac at the end of the file:

        echo "Usage: /etc/rc.d/init.d/autofs
        exit 1

Here again, bash will be lenient, but according to the man
page, this is a syntax error. Vim with color syntaxing also
shows this as an error. It works for now, but it might be a
good idea to fix those.

should be fixed already in the Raw Hide version...
