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.
