SubjectPlease try knfsd-981014
Date
This is the Linux kernel NFS daemon. It is based on linux-nfs 0.4.22.
It is tested on Linux/alpha and Linux/x86 running glibc 2.0.7.

I made my knfsd package available only because I use it and noone else
seems to maintain it. But I don't have much time to really work on it.
I will only fix bugs in the NFS utilities and serious kernel NFS bugs
which I can duplcate easily. If you have any kernel NFS server problem,
please report it to the Linux kernel mailing list. If it can be
reproduced with Linux NFS server and client in less than 5 minutes, you
can also send me a copy in addition to sending it to the Linux kernel
mailing list. I may take a look when I have time. However I will collect
kernel NFS related patches. Contributions are more than welcome.

Changes from knfsd-981010:

1. Check client aliases when matching for wildcard client hostnames.
2. Fix memory leak in mountd.
3. Fix filename in nfsd-2.1.125-1.patch.

Changes from knfsd-980930:

1. nfsd-2.1.125-1.patch from G. Allen Morris III (gam3@acm.org) and me.
2. Fix the hostent bugs in mountd and statd.
3. Remove "kexportfs -au" for "rc.nfsd stop".

Changes from knfsd-980925:

1. socket-2.1.1xx.diff for creating socket on NFS client.
2. There is a knsfd root_squash patch for Linux 2.1.1xx,
root-2.1.1xx.diff. It is only tested on linux 2.1.123.
It also fixes the server side 0711 mode bug.
3. sunrpc-2.1.123-1.patch from Bill Hawes <whawes@transmeta.com>.
4. nfsd-2.1.122-3.patch from G. Allen Morris III (gam3@acm.org).
5. Various buffer overrun changes.
6. Fix mountd to check the duplicated entry in rmtab.
7. Change exportfs to ignore warnings for "-r".
8. Fix showmount -e.

Changes from knfsd-980922:

1. nfsd-2.1.121-4.patch from G. Allen Morris III (gam3@acm.org).
2. Make async as default for export. It matches the user space NFS
server.

Changes from knfsd-980920:

1. Add NFS mount version flags to mountd. Change rc.nfsd to disable
NFS V3 for mountd.
2. Fix client hostname.
3. rc.nfsd runs kexportfs with -r instead of -a for restart and reload.

Changes from knfsd-980915:

1. There is a knsfd quota patch for Linux 2.1.1xx, quota-2.1.1xx.diff.
It is only tested on linux 2.1.122.
2. The submount pathname is removed from the xtab file.
3. rc.nfsd runs kexportfs with -r instead of -a for start.
4. Fix kshowmount -e.
5. Fix hostname matching.
6. Fix compiling on libc 5.

Changes from knfsd-980910:

1. nfsd-2.1.121-3.patch from G. Allen Morris III (gam3@acm.org).
2. A new flag, -r, for exportfs.
3. Don't put an entry in xtab if kernel rejects it.
4. Use the official hostname when checking if 2 hostnames are the same.
5. Allow submounts.

You have to apply the patch, linux-2.1.1xx.diff, to the Linux kernel
first. It fixes quite a few nfs bugs. That patch is against Linux
2.1.111. If your kernel is different, you have to apply it by hand.

If you want quota to work for knfsd, you also need to apply the patch,
quota-2.1.1xx.diff, to the Linux kernel. This patch is against Linux
2.1.122. If your kernel is different, you have to apply it by hand.

If you want root_squash to work for knfsd, you also need to apply the
patch, root-2.1.1xx.diff, to the Linux kernel. This patch is against
Linux 2.1.123. If your kernel is different, you have to apply it by
hand.

If you want unix socket to work for knfsd, you also need to apply the
patch, socket-2.1.1xx.diff, to the Linux kernel. This patch is against
Linux 2.1.122. If your kernel is different, you have to apply it by
hand.

sunrpc-2.1.123-1.patch is a knfsd patch against linux 2.1.123 by
Bill Hawes <whawes@transmeta.com>. It fixes some sunrpc bugs.

nfsd-2.1.125-1.patch is a new knfsd patch against linux 2.1.125. It is
based on the knfsd patch from "G. Allen Morris III" (gam3@acm.org)
plus my submount patch. It works for me on x86 and alpha. You can get
Allen's current patch from

http://www.CSUA.Berkeley.EDU/~gam3/knfsd/

To compile, just do

# make

Makefile will try to determine which C library you are using and compile
this package accordingly.

# make install

will install the knfsd binaries. You have to install a knfs start up
script by hand. There is a new rc.nfsd in etc. I use it for both the
user-space nfsd and the kernel nfsd.

The NFS lock is only tested with knfsd. If the NFS lock doesn't work
for you, please try knfsd first before reporting it.

Thanks.
