    Subjectfile locking over NFS in 2.2.7

    elm and mutt fail when they use fcntl() to lock the mail spool file which
    is mounted over NFS in our case (/var/spool/mail served by SunOS 4.1.3 and
    mounted by Linux clients). strace shows that after fcntl() the variable
    errno is set to "No locks available". It worked when 2.0.36 kernel was
    used. It also works from SunOS clients.

    On Linux side: kernel 2.2.7, latest userland nfsd, lockd is compiled into
    the kernel. A test program showed that Linux-Linux locking didn't work

    Can someone explain it or point to relevant information sources?
