Bug Fix Advisory autofs bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1435-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-11-08
Last updated on: 2011-11-08
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

An updated autofs package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The autofs utility controls the operation of the automount daemon. The automount
daemon automatically mounts file systems when you use them, and unmounts them
when they are not busy.

This update fixes the following bug:

* The recently released erratum RHBA-2011:1374, that corrected a problem with
included map entry removal, introduced a new problem with included map key
lookup. The condition that was used with the previous patch was too broad and
the map key lookup mechanism failed to find keys in an included multi-mount map
entry. The condition has been modified so that keys in multi-mount map entries
are now found correctly. (BZ#750463)

All users of autofs are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes
this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
