No /etc/auto.master or misc


Hi,
My OS is fedora 10 and i tried to do some experiment in auto mounting but there is no /etc/auto.master or misc ,so i try to install autofs by
Code:
yum install autofs*
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
No package autofs* available.
Nothing to do
and i checked the service is in start or stop like
Code:
service autofs status
autofs: unrecognized service
so i figured that autofs was not installed in my pc ,but i wonder is it not default one and onemore thing when i insert a cd or USB i get it by auotmounted

Try looking for automount, but I'd expect it to be part of the default install TBH..

Can't this be achieved by modifying your /etc/fstab

That looks like the one

autofs-5.0.3-30.i386

BTW, I believe they've stopped updating F10 now F12 is out, or they soon will. They only support 2 releases (eg F11, F12) at a time.

I believe (and you should ask on the Fedora forum) that 'recent' repos are often available, but you may need to tweak your repo cfg.
You can prob find out from Fedora's site and/or google.

Here is the contents of my /etc/fstab. All my drives auto mount when I connect them.
Code:
jared@debian:~$ cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
/dev/sda1       /               ext3    errors=remount-ro 0       1
/dev/sda5       none            swap    sw              0       0
