Details

Updated autofs packages that fix several bugs and add two enhancements are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

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

These updated autofs packages include numerous bug fixes and enhancements. Space
precludes documenting all of these changes in this advisory. Users are directed
to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 Technical Notes for information on the most
significant of these changes:

Users of autofs are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
these bugs and add these enhancements.
