Description Mathieu Arnold freebsd_committer 2017-01-09 17:16:28 UTC
After an update to 11.0, automountd would not start:

# /etc/rc.d/automount start
Assertion failed: (path[0] == '/'), function create_directory, file /usr/src/usr.sbin/autofs/common.c, line 136.
Abort trap (core dumped)

It was because of an unfortunate merge leftover from freebsd-update, /etc/auto_master's first line was "========".

It could say something a bit less intimidating.
