Description

LSAC(v2)
The am-utils packages provide the BSD automounter, Amd, which maintains a cache of mounted file systems. File systems are mounted when they are first referenced by a user, and unmounted after a period of inactivity. This update fixes the following bug: * Previously, the am-utils automount utility (amd) did not properly handle possible "no entry" error (ENOENT) returns when executing the umount system calls on file systems mounted within the autofs file system. As a consequence, amd terminated unexpectedly with a segmentation fault under some circumstances. With this update, amd handles ENOENT returns as expected, and the problem no longer occurs. (BZ#1065876) Users of am-utils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
