That's one thing I forgot to do in my troubleshooting--check the list
archives. Thanks, William.
But, that thread was unresolved. At least, there was never a solution
posted. I did as some of the responses suggested and manually created
the directories listed in auto.master. Still nothing. I've checked the
Arch and Gentoo wiki's and think that I have everything set up the way I
I do remember, however, when I last had my working LFS system on a
laptop 3-4 years ago, getting autofs to work was a major deal. The
solution, however, was something really, really simple. I just don't
remember what it was. I know I can mount these drives manually, but I'd
like to just plug them in and they are mounted. Right now, my expternal
CD drive doesn't mount either--and that configuration is given in the
book. That tells me the problem is more involved.
