YDL 2.1 mount/nfs problems

YDL 2.1 mount/nfs problems

Post by top.. » Fri, 25 Jan 2002 07:48:28

I've got a Slackware 8 server (kernel 2.2.19) that dishes out files just
fine to all my Slackware clients.  Now I'm setting up a YDL based laptop
(install was smooth as silk).  But I can't get things to mount.

When I type "rpc.mountd" I get the following error:

Cannot register service:  RPC:  Unabel to receive;  errno = Connection

And inside /var/log/messages I see:

<host> roadie rpc.mountd:  unable to register (mountd, 1, udp)

If I try to just "mount" a directory that I've set up in my fstab, mount
just hangs.  So does rpc.nfsd.  I can't even kill it.

Anyone have some advice?  Are there modules I need to load?  Services?
I'm a Slackware user, so the config here on YDL is a bit alien to me.

While I'm at it ... do I need all those services in /etc/services?
I have everything turned off on my Slack boxes.  Works fine.

1. Can I replace ydl 2.1 with ydl 2.3

I currently have a dual boot setup with ydl 2.1 and mac OS 9.2 on an imac.
My question is, can I install ydl 2.3 in place of 2.1 by doing a custom
install without disturbing or otherwise messing with the mac OS 9 partition.
Would it be the same procedure as if I were doing a reinstall of the 2.1
Thanks  in advance for whatever advice is offered.
