CONFIG_AUTOFS4_FS: Kernel automounter version 4 support (also supports v3)

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_AUTOFS4_FS has multiple definitions:

Kernel automounter version 4 support (also supports v3) found in fs/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_AUTOFS4_FS:

Help text

The automounter is a tool to automatically mount remote file systems on demand. This implementation is partially kernel-based to reduce overhead in the already-mounted case; this is unlike the BSD automounter (amd), which is a pure user space daemon.

To use the automounter you need the user-space tools from <ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/daemons/autofs/v4/>; you also want to answer Y to "NFS file system support", below.

To compile this support as a module, choose M here: the module will be called autofs4. You will need to add "alias autofs autofs4" to your modules configuration file.

If you are not a part of a fairly large, distributed network or don't have a laptop which needs to dynamically reconfigure to the local network, you probably do not need an automounter, and can say N here.
