comment Automount SMB share when NAS becomes available
Is there a way to use a password from the keychain instead of specifying it in the auto_xxx config file? I've created a separate question for it here: superuser.com/q/812582/130030

What is "-fstp"? According to the docs, shouldn't that be -fstype=smb? Additionally, why is there a : before the url? The man page shows 'smb -fstype=smb //guest@smbserver/share' as an example

comment Start configured VPN from command line (OSX)
Any wait to get scutil to wait until the connection is complete before returning? I need to run a script once the connection is established, but scutil returns too quickly and the following command is executed before the connection is established.

Just tried this in Lion (10.7.5) and it works great. Just not documented in the man pages. Thanks!

comment How to install git on CentOS5 without root access?
@three I realize that, but just adds an extra step for me to create a local working copy that is based on a tag to push to the machine. If I can get git working on the server, then I can just pull changes and reset to the right tag. Am trying to be a little lazy. :)

comment How to install git on CentOS5 without root access?
@jjlin I am trying to avoid setting up a duplicate CentOs 5.5 environment with build tools just to build git binaries. I am very surprised to find out that this cannot be done without rebuilding the binaries! I was sure there would be a way to configure git to work without having to rebuild everything.

comment How to install git on CentOS5 without root access?
@jjlin - it is mentioned in the other post, but from a quick google to understand what it does, it seemed to be related to the msysGit project and/or the build process. I updated my question with the info relating to GIT_EXEC_PATH as well.

comment How to install git on CentOS5 without root access?
@jjlin - It is similar to that question, yes, but not a duplicate. Perhaps I should have linked to that question in my original post - I'll edit it to make the correction. Unfortunately, the solutions offered in that SO post are not applicable (ie: download source and recompile as I do not have make tools, or just extract the rpm as extracting the rpm does not work).
