Description Gavin Panella 2002-06-20 09:39:20 UTC
In start() it derives a pid file name with this line:

    pidfile=/var/run/autofs`echo $mnt | sed 's/\//./'`.pid if $mnt is something like /foobar/fred it will later try to create
/var/run/autofs.foobar/ (which fails), rather than

A solution:

    pidfile=/var/run/autofs`echo $mnt | sed 's/\//./g'`.pid

or perhaps...

  Can you double check the autofs file found in the autofs/files directory... It
appears to already have a /g at the end of the string.
Comment 2 Gavin Panella 2002-06-21 05:38:20 UTC
It's not there... but I've done some more digging...

The 3.1.7-r3 ebuild is using 'autofs.rc6' rather than 'autofs' in which this bug
is fixed in rev 1.2.  Looks like only the ebuild needs a tweak.

Comment 3 Ryan Phillips (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-06-21 18:11:43 UTC
Changed autofs.rc6:  Added a \g to the regex.
