One quick question.
I know that what I want to do is possible using am-utils but I cannot
get it working with the 4.4 BSD automounter shipped with OpenBSD-3.5.
Basically, before trying again for hours, I wanted to know if it was
possible at all to automount a directory which is a subdir of a mounted
For example, I would like to automount /usr/ports (/usr is a regular
local ufs mounted filesystem) with amd... so far as soon as I start amd,
the content of my /usr directory disappear ; it looks like amd needs the
whole mount point.
It works with no problem for mount points like /home, /net...
I read http://www.netbsd.org/Documentation/bsd/amdref.html as well as
the included documentation without finding anything about it. The closer
I got was with using type=link, but this does not seem to work either.
Any hints on that issue would be more than welcome.
