Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Fedora Updated package.
Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : autofs
Version     : 4.1.3
Release     : 114
Summary     : A tool for automatically mounting and unmounting filesystems.
Description :
autofs is a daemon which automatically mounts filesystems when you use
them, and unmounts them later when you are not using them.  This can
include network filesystems, CD-ROMs, floppies, and so forth.


* Wed Mar 23 2005 Chris Feist  - 1:4.1.3-114

- Fixed regression causing any entries after a wildcard in an
   indirect map to be ignored. (bz #151668).
- Fixed regression which caused local hosts to be mount instead
   of --bind local directories. (bz #146887)

* Thu Mar 17 2005 Chris Feist  - 1:4.1.3-110

- Fixed one off bug in the submount-variable-propagation patch.
   (bz #143074)
- Fixed a bug in the init script which wouldn't find the -browse
   option if it was preceded by another option. (fz #113494)

* Mon Feb 28 2005 Chris Feist  - 1:4.1.3-100

- When using ldap if auto.master doesn't exist we now check for auto_master.
   Addresses bz #130079
- When using an auto.smb map we now remove the leading ':' from the path which
   caused mount to fail in the past.  Addresses bz #147492
- Autofs now checks /etc/nsswitch.conf to determine in what order files & nis
   are checked when looking up autofs submount maps which don't specify a
   maptype.  Addresses IT #57612.

* Fri Feb 11 2005 Jeff Moyer  - 1:4.1.3-97

- Program maps can repeat the last character of output.  Fix this.
   Addresses bz #138606
- Return first entry when there are duplicate keys in a map.  Addresses
   bz #140108.
- Propagate custom map variables to submounts.  Fixes bz #143074.
- Create a sysconfig variable to control whether we source only one master
   map (the way sun does), or source all maps found (which is the default for
   backwards compatibility).  Addresses bz #143126.
- Revised version of the get_best_mount patch. (#146887)
   The previous patch introduced a regression.  Non-replicated mounts would
   not have the white space stripped from the entry and the mount would fail.
- Handle comment characters in the middle of the automount line in
   /etc/nsswitch.conf.  Addresses bz #127457.

* Wed Feb  2 2005 Chris Feist  - 1:4.1.3-93

- Stop automount from pinging hosts if there is only one host (#146887)

* Wed Feb  2 2005 Jeff Moyer  - 1:4.1.3-89

- Fix potential double free in cache_release.  This bug showed up in a
   multi-map setup.  Two calls to cache_release would result in a SIGSEGV,
   and the automount process would never exit.

* Mon Jan 31 2005 Jeff Moyer  - 1:4.1.3-86

- Merge in map expiry code.
- Merge in patches from devel branch.

* Mon Jan 24 2005 Chris Feist  - 1:4.3-84

- Fixed documentation so users know that any local mounts override
   any other weighted mount.

* Mon Jan 24 2005 Chris Feist  - 1:4.3-79

- Added a variable to determine if we created the directory or not
   so we don't accidently remove a directory that we didn't create when
   we stop autofs.  (bz #134399)

* Sun Dec 12 2004 Chris Feist  - 1:4.1.3-68

- Fixed segfault when LDAP_SIZELIMIT_EXCEEDED is called and --ghost
   is used, addresses  bz #137220 & #142576.

* Tue Dec  7 2004 Chris Feist  - 1:4.1.3-60

- Fixed problem with autofs not finding all mount points in an ldap map.
   bz #139548

* Fri Nov 19 2004 Jeff Moyer  - 1:4.1.3-59

- Pass a socket into clntudp_bufcreate so that we don't use up additional
   reserved ports.  This patch, along with the socket leak fix, addresses
   bz #128966.
- Add a space after "Starting automounter:".  Addresses bz #138513

* Mon Nov 15 2004 Jeff Moyer  - 1:4.1.3-52

- Make autofs understand -[no]browse.  Addresses fz #113494.

* Thu Nov 11 2004 Jeff Moyer  - 1:4.1.3-49

- Fix the umount loop device function in the init script.

* Mon Nov  8 2004 Chris Feist  - 1:4.1.3-45

- Added a patch to fix a bug which didn't test all hosts in a
   replicated map to see which one had the lowest ping. (bz #130467)

* Wed Nov  3 2004 Chris Feist  - 1:4.1.3-41

- Fixed init script to not look for maps in the current directory
   (bz #57008)

* Fri Oct 29 2004 Chris Feist  - 1:4.1.3-38

- Fixed ldap limit search patch to only issue warnings only
   when ghosting is requested.

* Wed Oct 27 2004 Chris Feist  - 1:4.1.3-33

- Added a patch to fix the automounter failing on ldap maps
   when it couldn't get the whole map.  (ie. when the search
   limit was lower than the number of results)

* Thu Oct 21 2004 Chris Feist  - 1:4.1.3-32

- Fixed the use of +ypmapname so the maps included with +ypmapname
   are used in the correct order.  (In the past the '+' entries
   were always processed after local entries.)

* Thu Oct 21 2004 Chris Feist  - 1:4.1.3-31

- Fixed the duplicate map detection code to detect if maps try
   to mount on top of existing maps.

* Wed Oct 20 2004 Chris Feist  - 1:4.1.3-29

- Fixed a problem with backwards compatability. Specifying local
   maps without '/etc/' prepended to them now works. (bz #136038)
