Description Nalin Dahyabhai 1999-04-30 15:18:50 EDT
/etc/rc.d/init.d/autofs contains the following:
if [ -f /etc/$map ] ; then
	echo "$basecommand file /etc/$map ...
	echo "$basecommand yp $map ..."

This breaks any lookup method that isn't file or yp, namely
nisplus and program, and hesiod if you recompile with it.
Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 1999-04-30 15:40:59 EDT
I forgot that autofs isn't exclusive-arch: i386 anymore.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-08-21 15:21:59 EDT
This should be fixed in autofs-3.1.3-5, which will be in the
next Raw Hide release.

You will be able to specify in /etc/auto.master:

/mnt	nisplus:/etc/mnt.map

which specifies to use an nisplus map.
