3/26/2012

  • Read some info abut automount and how to use autofs. Mounting, in Linux terminology, means that contents of a certain location, be it local hardware (like hard disks, CD ROMs, USB Drives etc) or in a remote machine is made available to be accessed from your Linux system.During the mounting process, these hardware devices, or file systems on remote machines are mapped onto a directory of your local Linux file system. Thus, accessing this directory technically means that you are accessing the content of your physical storage device.
  • Assume your auto.master has an entry like this

/misc /etc/auto.misc –timeout 60

  • This means that /misc directory will contain the autofs mount points, and /etc/auto.misc is where the default mount map file is located, and also after 60 seconds of idling the device will be automatically unmounted. Assume you want to automount your CD-ROM onto the Linux file system.
  • Add the following line to the end of auto.misc file.

cdrom -fstype=iso9660,ro,nosuid,nodev :/dev/cdrom

  • Save and exit from auto.misc file.
  • Restart autofs by typing the following command at the terminal.

/etc/init.d/autofs restart

  • Once autofs restarts, initially you may not be able to view the contents of the CD-ROM at /misc as configured.
  • Type at the terminal.

ll /misc/cdrom

  • You will be able to see the contents of the CD-ROM now.
  • Once you are done simply eject the CD.


Plan
  • Is to finish proposal by Friday 30, and post it to Wiki. Also get automount to work, and try to find IDE connector to install opensuse 10.3 on my desktop drive (for Sky and Evan) in case they would needed.
Concerns
  • No concernes at this time.
