I don't see much advantage to link to the other wiki page, rather expand this page? There is more about udev than autofs in the other article. You can actual easily define UUID for certain devices (gonne add this now) as shown in Amazon Kindle, the only advanced thing is to dynamic create entries for autofs via udev...

How to start autofs daemon with systemd, and is it necessary at all?

   # systemctl enable autofs
   Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/ → /lib/systemd/system/autofs.service.
   # systemctl status autofs
       ● autofs.service - Automounts filesystems on demand

«Note: You no longer need to load autofs4 module.» Why?

   # zgrep "CONFIG_AUTOFS_FS" /proc/config.gz

«If you want to use the newer version of the automounter with more features, say N here and say Y to "Kernel automounter v4 support", below.»

   # zgrep "CONFIG_AUTOFS4_FS" /proc/config.gz

My system somehow have both of them "y".

"dmalloc" USE-flag is not described

Looks like these issues have been resolved. Closing. Glibg10b (talk) 13:32, 31 March 2024 (UTC)
