Help: How many automount/mount process need to mount same disk.?

Post by Bambang Sugiantor » Tue, 16 Sep 1997 04:00:00

Hi alls,

Can somebody explain this:

In case of auto_home (automounter)

        user1           server1:/export/home/user1
        user2           server1:/export/home/user2
        usern           server1:/export/home/usern

where /export/home/user1 ... usern is on the same disk

If all the user (user1 till usern) login from other server,
I see from df, there are n new mount point ie /home/user1 till
/home/usern mount point.

Does it mean there will be n mount point (or process to mount) for
the same destination? Will it be a problem or make the system slow?
Can I use this auto_home scheme?

How many mount process actualy for this same destination?
Compare with if I just mount the server1:/export/home to /home.

1. CD-ROM mount needs source <--> source needs CD-ROM mount

I've just ploughed through the entirety of misc,hardware and setup, to no
avail;  I installed Linux from the sbpcd boot disk (as I have a Panasonic
CD-ROM drive hanging off a SoundBlaster-compat. card), and the CD-ROM drive
chugged away happily to give me the OS.  However, my concerns about the size of
everything I was prompted to install made me decide NOT to install the linux

Now, when I boot up the CD drive cannot be mounted because of 'wrong fs, blah
blah, or other error'.  I interrogated sbpcd.h (I *did* install the includes)
and the setup was incorrect.  Because I can't mount the CD drive I can't get
the source off the CD - re-booting off the boot disk (sbpcd) and trying a
reinstall  from the CD using setup gives a warning that the CD drive can't be

Should I delete the linux partition and start from scratch again?  I do really
need to access the CD drive, and I realise now that it is kind of useful to
have the OS source.

Apart from that, it's great having a proper OS on my PC at last!
