Autofs for CoreELEC

Hi there, Thanks for bringing CoreELEC on Odroid N2 working great!!!

Since we have docker support, It will be nice to have autofs support.

Exemple: Sonarr Docker can access and wake up a nas with autofs support.

Kernel configuration is already supporting autofs, only the package is missing.
Thanks in advance.

I was using systemd auto mount:

Yup but when nas server is offline, it’s not unmounted, plus you cannot add a script like autofs to send a wol packet when à trying to access the directory.

Edit= There seems to have a timeout option, I will tryout to see if it work and I can add an action.


thanks @vpeter I achieved to Autoumount with systemd and also run a Wol script via systemd socket, forward some traffic. But honestly, it’s a pain in the a… when you try to do it! Autofs is so simple!

If anyone interested, I can make a small How to.

I think you should consider adding autofs support, as it light and already in the kernel config. And really useful, especially for N2 and it’s power to run multiple dockers.
