    Subjectproblems with nfs-server in 2.5 bk as of 030115
    Hi Trond,

    This is the first time I've tried running an nfs-server in 2.5 and I
    believe the problem I'm seeing is caused by your recent changes.

    This kernel includes the two fixes you made.
    "[PATCH] Fix RPC client warning in 2.5.58..."
    "[PATCH] Fix NFS root mount handling"

    I havn't seen any nfs/rpc related changes since these patches.

    This is what I get when trying to start the nfs-server
    (/etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server in debian):

    Installing knfsd (copyright (C) 1996
    RPC: Couldn't create pipefs entry /portmap/clntcfac0540
    RPC: Couldn't create pipefs entry /portmap/clntcfac0540
    RPC: Couldn't create pipefs entry /portmap/clntcfac0540

    I've mounted the rpc_pipefs filesystem and the directory
    portmap/clntcfac0540 is created. It's empty but created.
    It gets created with 500 as permissions.

    the directories at the root of the rpc_pipefs filesystem get created
    correctly with the permissions that your patch changed but not the
    entries in these directories.

    portmap does run as user daemon on this system.

    I did check to make sure your patches were included and they were.

    Output from rpcinfo:
    # rpcinfo -p localhost
    program vers proto port
    100000 2 tcp 111 portmapper
    100000 2 udp 111 portmapper
    100005 1 udp 32832 mountd
    100005 1 tcp 35561 mountd
    100005 2 udp 32832 mountd
    100005 2 tcp 35561 mountd

    modules loaded:

    nfsd 118640 0
    exportfs 4224 1 nfsd
    lockd 61040 1 nfsd
    sunrpc 115844 3 nfsd,lockd

    relevant parts of .config:
    # CONFIG_NFSD_TCP is not set
    # CONFIG_SUNRPC_GSS is not set

    kernel compiled with gcc 3.2.2 if that matters.

    Looking forward to suggestions/patches to test :)


    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
