I can only read the cd/dvd drive in root after manually load the module as su. I have added the command to the script and didn't work.

Using /media for autoFS seems like a bad idea. It appears to take over the directory and hides any other folders in it, so drives mounted to /media via /etc/fstab will not work properly with autofs mounting to /media. Perhaps we should change this to /media/autofs or something else.

I've done a major rewrite of the article, added the suggestions above, also added a network mount section and commented ambiguous tweaks from the original article. Litemotiv 09:21, 15 February 2009 (EST)

Would it also be possible to cover the use of autofs together with NIS? (Or should that go on the page about NIS?) - Magus 05:31, 7 May 2010 (EDT)

AutoFS doesn't seem to exist in the repositories, only in the AUR.

Didn't Work

The directions given didn't work for me in trying to get my floppy drive listed on my desktop or any file manager. Don't know why. - KitchM 23:54, 11 October 2011 (EDT)

--ghost in autofs5

Hi, after installing autofs from the normal repo I was greeted with > In autofs5 --ghost option isn't valid. In order to start autofs you > must remove that option from your /etc/conf.d/autofs. so apparently --ghost is not valid anymore and should be removed from the wiki and config files --P90 (talk) 16:09, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
