An updated autofs package that fixes a bug is now available. The autofs utility controls the operation of the automount daemon, which automatically mounts, and then unmounts file systems after a period of inactivity. File systems can include network file systems, CD-ROMs, diskettes, and other media.

How do I update my autofs package?

Simply type the following command:
# yum update
