Description Gilbert E. Detillieux 2000-03-02 22:01:08 UTC
For some reason, the start/stop sequence numbers in the chkconfig comment
for the autofs init.d script changed from RH 6.1 to 6.2.  Unfortunately,
the new sequence (15) causes it to start before ypbind (17).  This is bad
if you want to read the NIS auto.master map.

Also (and I don't know if this second problem is a bug or a feature), the
old script used to run through /etc/auto.master followed by the NIS
auto.master map, with two separate "if" clauses.  Now, a single if/else
construct causes it to skip the NIS map if /etc/auto.master is found. This
may be closer to the Solaris automount behaviour, but the old way was
better, IMHO, especially since the stock /etc/auto.master is not
particularly useful as is.  (But I can live with this if it's an
intentional feature - I'll just have to take out /etc/auto.master to get
the NIS map instead.)

This should already be fixed in Raw Hide, where autofs starts at step 18,
which puts it after 17 (ypbind).
