Gnome won't start now on NFS mounted home dirs

Gnome won't start now on NFS mounted home dirs

Post by » Sun, 19 Dec 2004 07:02:23

After rebooting hosts (Solaris 9) that previously run Gnome 2 without
problems I can't start it again. It starts on hosts that had not been
rebooted yet.
Also, some another application won't start now, so I assume it is
because of the same cause.
Here are some more information from developer who can't start his

May some latest patches applied to file server (Solaris 8) affect NFS
such a way? Do I need to patch all my Solaris 9 hosts because, say, Sun
decided to correct some locking issues in NFS implementation?

1. nfs - mount -t nfs host:<dir> <dir>

The mount -t nfs command "failed, reason given by server:
Permission denied."
I have checked faq's, doc/nfs*, Linux System Adminstrators
Manual, even asked my wife- (she's the smarter one) and still
can't mount remote.  Will appreciate any suggestions
