Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 4
Name        : autofs
Version     : 4.1.4                      
Release     : 15                  
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.

Update Information:

Update autofs with latest stable patches.
* Tue Jan 17 2006 Ian Kent <ikent at redhat.com> - 1:4.1.4-15
- Sync patches with rawhide.
- Replace deferred syslog patch with reentrant syslog patch.
- Update copyright declaration for reentrant-syslog source.
- Replace check-is-multi with more general multi-parse-fix.
- Add fix for premature return when waiting for lock file.
- Add patch for configure option to disable locking during mount.
  But don't disable locking by default.
- Add ability to handle automount schema used in Sun directory server.
- Quell compiler warning about getsockopt parameter.
- Quell compiler warning about yp_order parameter.
* Wed May  4 2005 Jeff Moyer <jmoyer at redhat.com> - 1:4.1.4-8
- Add in the deferred syslog patch.  This fixes a hung automounter issue
  related to unsafe calls to syslog in signal handler context.
* Tue May  3 2005 Jeff Moyer <jmoyer at redhat.com> - 1:4.1.4-7
- I reversed the checking for multimount entries, breaking those configs!
  This update puts the code back the way it was before I broke it.
* Tue Apr 26 2005 Jeff Moyer <jmoyer at redhat.com> - 1:4.1.4-6
- Fix a race between mounting a share and updating the cache in the parent
  process.  If the mount completed first, the parent would not expire the
  stale entry, leaving it first on the list.  This causes map updates to not
  be recognized (well, worse, they are recognized after the first expire, but
  not subsequent ones).  Fixes a regression, bug #137026 (rhel3 bug).
