Hi Folks,

When the Sheevaplug arrived with the pre-baked ubuntu, I immediately installed portmap and nfs-common to mount the nfs shares from my readynas.  It worked without a hitch.  But now that I've updated to the latest 2.6.31, it can no longer connect.

Code:
root@ubuntu:~# mount cylon:/media /media/media
mount.nfs: mount system call failed

I can still safely connect on my desktop ubuntu install.  What gives?  What code should I be providing in order to diagnose this?

I've been googling, but none of the discussions I've seen seem to fit.

Thanks! Nyquist

Oh, and here's the build:
Code:
Linux ubuntu 2.6.31 #2 PREEMPT Wed Sep 16 00:55:42 MDT 2009 armv5tel

Found this old thread from googling NFS with the sheeva.  I used to run NFS years ago, but this is refusing to work:

Code:
root@dattaway:/# /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server start
 * Not starting NFS kernel daemon: no support in current kernel.

I thought this was odd after modprobing nfsd, so...

Code:
root@dattaway:/# zcat /proc/config.gz | grep NFS
CONFIG_NFS_FS=y
CONFIG_NFS_V3=y
# CONFIG_NFS_V3_ACL is not set
CONFIG_NFS_V4=y
# CONFIG_NFS_V4_1 is not set
CONFIG_ROOT_NFS=y
CONFIG_NFSD=m
CONFIG_NFSD_V3=y
# CONFIG_NFSD_V3_ACL is not set
CONFIG_NFSD_V4=y
CONFIG_NFS_COMMON=y

It appears to me nfs server in the kernel, but I can't export any services.  What gives?

Thanks!  That found my problem.  Commenting out the kernel support check in the init script and I was able to start a full working nfs.

Interestingly, my first attempt was trying to rm the script and reinstalling failed.  I was able to purge the old nfs setup and reinstall.  From there I was able to "fix" the script.
