Description David Carter 1999-11-18 04:15:53 EST
If "/etc/auto.master" contains:

  /home   yp:auto.home    --timeout 60

then "/etc/rc.d/init.d/autofs start" complains:

  sh: yp:auto.home: command not found

Closer investigation suggests that the problem is at line 59 of the
init.d file:

  if echo $map | grep -- ':' ; then
                            ^ should have >/dev/null 2>&1

This should be fixed in autofs-3.1.4 and later, in Raw Hide.  Please try this
version and reopen this bug if you continue to experience this problem.
