[Gluster-users] _netdev option.

When I take a look at the init script on ubuntu 12.04. The _netdev is only working for   the following network filesystems  nfs|nfs4|smbfs|ncp|ncpfs|cifs|coda|ocfs2|gfs|pvfs|pvfs2|fuse.httpfs|fuse.curlftpfs
I guess when ubuntu adds glusterfs to this list and create a umountglusterfs.sh script like umountnfs.sh, that _netdev will work for glusterfs to.

Grtz, Jiri

>> It's supposed to make the gluster mount wait until networking is started before trying to mount it. As far as I'm aware it doesn't work. I've still not found a sane, reliable solution to make gluster mount on boot - at             the moment I have an rc.local script that waits for a while before mounting, but it only works about 50% of the time.
