You don't have NFS server support in your kernel. You need to select
"Prompt for development and/or incomplete code/drivers" under "Code
maturity level options" then select "NFS server support" under "Network
File Systems" under "Filesystems".

1. nfsd: Problem with corrupt files and dying rpc.nfsd with Redhat Linux 5.1 + Solaris 2.5

Hello,

I'm running Red Hat Linux 5.1 on a PII 400 and am having some problems with
a dying nfsd process and corrupt files when I mount a linux file-system on a
solaris machine and try to copy/extract large files on the mounted system.

Basically every time I try to write a large file (~20MB)
from a Solaris machine to a Linux file-system mounted using NFS, my rpc.nfsd
process on the Linux server dies, and any files from the linux server opened
on any machine get corrupted.

My other HP machines or Windows NT machines do not seem to kill the nfsd process
when writing to the mounted file system.

Can anyone suggest what may be wrong here? I heard something about knfsd being
able to fix the problem. Can I use it without having to upgrade Linux to 6.0?
I also heard that there may be a Solaris patch that may fix my problem...

If it helps, I have some information that may indicate the problem.

My /var/log/messages on linux reports the following just before the process crashes:
Jun 17 17:16:10 server nfsd[837]: strange write req from <anon clnt>: len 53248
Jun 17 17:16:56 server nfsd[2274]: exports file has anon entries, but host

use
Jun 17 17:17:01 server nfsd[2275]: could not make a udp socket

My current nfs RPM versions are the following that I updated using the latest RHL 5.2 updates.

nfs-server-2.2beta40-1.i386.rpm
nfs-server-clients-2.2beta40-1.i386.rpm

My dmesg reports the following:

3c59x.c:v0.99L 5/28/99 Donald Becker http://cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov/linux/drivers/vortex.html

Thank You,
