Hi,
my question is:
I have need to set up autonfs on a Gentoo server, this is the wiki: http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/AutoFS

I do not have the module'automounter' in the loaded kernel; I have compile a new one with “automounter”, like demanded, and would be much content if you succeeded to load it without reboot the machine.


Someone can say to me if it is possible and indicate to me the necessary procedure?

thank's in advance,
Mauizio

Hi pigreco,
If don't intend to upgrade your kernel, I'm almost sure you can recompile your kernel with the additional options and run the module with modprobe. Obviously, it must be compiled "as module" and you have to make sure that autonfs really runs as module. Otherwise, I'm afraid you will have to reboot.
Hope it helps. Best.

Building a module after the fact and inserting it sometimes works and sometimes fails, depending on whether the core kernel needs to have special handling. Some modules require that the kernel export symbols which are only exported if the kernel was told to expect a module which needs them. Many do not.
