Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 68150
Autofs Init Script Improperly Identifies Maps
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:43:56 EDT
Description of Problem:
Autofs file maps are being identified as maptype=program instead of
maptile=file. This prevents autofs from being able to lookup mount points.
This seems like an underlying problem in the command line interpreter because
the test in /etc/rc.d/init.d/autofs to determine the maptype looks correct, but
the result is not as expected. eg.
[root@limbo root]# ls -l /etc/auto.master
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 77 07-06 17:21 /etc/auto.master
[root@limbo root]# if [ -x /etc/auto.master ] ; then echo file_is_executable ; fi
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Limbo
2. Try to setup a file based autofs map
Not able to mount filesystems specified in autofs map
Able to mount filesystenms specified in autofs map.
I am moving this bug to bash as downgrading to the version of bash in RedHat 7.2
(2.05-8) fixed the problem. This is odd as my RedHat 7.3 machine does not have
the same problem, but using the version of bash from 7.3 exhibits the same
After a fair bit of pain I was able to apply the updates from the beta channel
on the RHN and this problem seems to be fixed.
Great! Marking as fixed in Raw Hide.
