Binary package “autofs5” in ubuntu maverick
kernel-based automounter for Linux, version 5
Autofs controls the operation of the automount daemons. The
automount daemons automatically mount filesystems when they
are used and unmount them after a period of inactivity. This
is done based on a set of pre-configured maps.
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.
