-*- text -*- autofs is a kernel-based automounter for Linux. It performs a job similar to amd(8) but relies on a small stub of kernel code instead of pretending to be an NFS server. The result is simpler code, better reliability, and much faster operation in the common case (everything already mounted.) An AMD/AutoFS HOWTO is available at: http://www.Linux-Consulting.com/Amd_AutoFS/autofs.html ... as well as from your favourite HOWTO archive. To build autofs, please run: ./configure to configure the system. See README.options for options that you can give configure. After configuring, you can: make ... make the daemon and modules make install ... install the daemon and modules Development kernels 2.3.41 and onwards contain the autofs4 as standard. If you're using 2.2, you can apply the patch in the patches directory; it was made from 2.2.14, but it should work on 2.2.10 onwards. Patches related to extensions written by Ian Kent are also in the patches directory. See README.ghosting for a description of the kernel patches. If you use autofs as a module, you need to add "alias autofs4 autofs" to your modules config file (/etc/modules.conf or /etc/conf.modules). Limited direct mount functionality has been implemented and a describtion of what can be done can be found in README.direct. autofs was written by H. Peter Anvin of Transmeta Corporation, please read the COPYRIGHT file. autofs 4 is the result of Jeremy Fitzhardinge's <email@example.com> work on autofs 3. Further enhancements have been made by Ian Kent <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
