After that, the nfsd was working fine on my system. On another
machine with kernel 2.2.17, the NFS was working without doing
nothing (very upsetting...).
I suggest you revise the NFS-HOWTO and check for "troubleshooting"
in the last part of the howto...
I'm running RH7.2 with a kernel 2.4.18 I compiled myself.
I've compiled the kernel with support for nfs (both as module and
compiled into the kernel), but trying to run the nfs daemon (rpc.nfsd)
nfssvc: function not implemented.
Most other nfs daemons (portmap,rquota etc) work.
Could it have to do with the fact the kernel is a 'clean' kernel without
any of the RedHat custom patches?
