I am facing problems with long timeout when operating files (even those locally stored) in my home network (no shares, just wifi connection). I guess this might be caused by autofs set to mount NAS share (CIFS) located in my office network (works as a charm in the office network). Is there any chance to shorten timeouts in case autofs cannot find the specified mountpoint? I went through autofs man pages; could –negative-timeout <seconds> be the solution?
I cannot present openSUSE due to this out of office as anybody might think the system is incredibly slow. So as it is annoying.
