The kernel automounter implements an almost complete SunOS style automounter under Linux. A recent version of the kernel autofs4 module (builtin or separate) is required.
This is the experimental branch of the autofs daemon.

See automount(8). - The master map default is "auto.master" and nsswitch is used to locate it. The line "+auto.master" has been added to the default installed "/etc/auto.master" to ensu more»

Using autofs, this module allows the illusion that all CDs are mounted at any given time. Only when data more»
