Description weejock-rhbug 1999-05-21 18:59:34 UTC
Hi,

1) initscript bug:
I noticed that commenting out a line from auto.master and
then running:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/autofs restart

does not remove the old mount.

2) Packaging request:
Could the sub-config files by moved into a directory like
auto.d?  I find it rather easier to manage that way.

Cheers,
Matthew.

Confirmed in test lab.  The only way to get the system to forget about
the mount point is to stop and then start autofs.

Comment 2 Cristian Gafton 1999-06-18 17:38:59 UTC
are you sure the mount point does not timeout when it should ? It will
not disappear immediately...

Please reopen if that is the case.

Sure.  This is _not_ the an automagically mounted filesystem, but
rather the autofs filesystem itself which hangs around:

(The "automount(pid1311) on /mnt/elks type autofs" one.)
