automounting/rc.autofs


Trying to get get automount to work

I downloaded rc.autofs I read about in another thread but do i still need the autofs prog to make it work? (wont install cos of errors)

my auto.master:

/cd /etc/auto.cd --timeout 10
/floppy /etc/auto.floppy --timeout 1

my auto.cd:

dvd -fstype=iso9660,ro :/dev/hdc
cd -fstype=iso9660,ro :/dev/hdd

I have automount support in kernel (2.6.12) and /cd and /floppy dirs. Also commented out lines in fstab to see if thers any change

There are no cd or dvd dirs in /cd

autofs is for the kernel side,
you need automount daemon from the user side

Why don't you install autofs slackware package ?

Of course it works.
Did you started the automount daemon ?
/etc/rc.d/rc.autofs start

What does mount say ?

Great, it works

Put a data CD in your DVD drive and try :
ls /cd/dvd

Also you may want to comment the fstab lines about floppy, hdc and hdd

And in auto.floppy, try use -fstype=vfat
