1. Status of the support

Linuxconf knows little about the amd automounter. There is no known default configuration file for amd, so we are proposing /etc/

Linuxconf knows how to start and restart the amd server depending on the status of the file /etc/ At this point this is all that Linuxconf is doing with amd.

A sample is supplied in /usr/lib/linuxconf. This file is used for NFS. Whenever you have this file installed in /etc and start the amd server, you will get a "magic" /n directory. Whenever you do

        ls /n/any-host/dir/...

the automounter will wake up and establish the NFS mount (if possible) to this "any-host" server. The mount will be dropped after five minutes of inactivity.
