2.4 and mountd,nfsd RPC timeout

2.4 and mountd,nfsd RPC timeout

Post by Brando » Thu, 11 Jan 2001 03:52:16

Hi there,

I just compiled kernel 2.4 on my slack 7 machine, and suddenly mountd
and nfsd fail on startup.  The exact messages are both: "Cannot register
service: RPC: Timed out"  Now, I don't use NFS, and I think both of
those daemons are only important to NFS, so I suppose with some
tinkering I could figure out how to remove them, but I'd really like to
know what caused the problem.  Did I not include something in the kernel
build, or are the daemons imcompatible with 2.4?

On a related note, my video driver (nvidia's NVdriver, patched and
recompiled for 2.4) suddenly ceased to work after the upgrade too,
needing dependencies: __vmalloc, irq_stat, and a couple others.



1. How to use rpc.portmap, rpc.mountd, rpc.nfsd?

[Q2] Stupid but non-FAQ NFS question #2:
Thanks for the help of finding out the rpc.portmap, rpc.mountd, rcp.nfsd.  
Still, after reading the NFS-FAQ, Linux Network Admin Guide, none of these guys
seem to work at all.  I still get the message of RPC fault: program is not
registered.  I guess I really need a cookbook example.

Let's say I have machines A and B which both of them can telnet and ftp to each
other.  In other words, they are properly connected.  Now, this is how I did.
I add three statements at the begninning of the rc.inet2 at machine A:

/bin/mount -t nfs B:/home /mnt

Then, I add /mnt B[rw] at /etc/exports at machine A.
Then, reboot machine A, and it prompts RPC fault: program is not registered.
Can anyone provide me an idiot-proof way of attacking this?  Thanks.
BTW, someone mention "premeter".  What is that?
