2.4.20 autofs: non-toplevel mounts broken? - Debian

Which modules would you suggest? I can't guess at what additional module would be needed. Googling reveals a large amount of information, way too much, but nothing that points me to a solution.

    Great idea! Which modules would you suggest? I can't guess at what
    additional module would be needed. Googling reveals a large amount of
    information, way too much, but nothing that points me to a solution.

    Thanks

    autofs4; the autofs module doesn't have the hierarchical support.

    Yes! Success! Thank you very much for that answer.

    Here is a summary for the archive and search engines:

    The kernel version was a red herring. It had nothing to do with the
    kernel version. In the intervening time I was able to reduce that the
    same version the kernel worked or did not work depending upon the
    kernel configuration.

    Rob's answer solved the mystery. The first kernel worked because I
    had compiled everything into it and the second one did not because I
    made it modular and autofs was getting loaded automatically while
    autofs4 was not.

    Getting to root cause, here was the different kernel configurations
    which caused this behavior. I hadn't noticed this and could see
    'autofs' in the modules and did not know there was another version of
    it available.

    Old config:
    CONFIG_AUTOFS_FS=m
    CONFIG_AUTOFS4_FS=y <-- y so this is compiled in the kernel
    New config:
    CONFIG_AUTOFS_FS=m
    CONFIG_AUTOFS4_FS=m <-- no longer y and so needs to be specified

    The new config works fine if I included autofs4 in /etc/modules.
    (Actually I just turned off nfs, 'rmmod autofs', 'modprobe autofs4'
    and turned nfs back on so I did not even need to reboot.
