Description Joshua Weage 2004-01-12 19:54:13 UTC
Description of problem:
When I attempt to mount an NFS directory in an Anaconda %post script,
I get the following messages on VC 3 or 4:

portmap: server localhost not responding, timed out
portmap: server localhost not responding, timed out
lockd-up: makesock failed, error 5
portmap: server localhost not responding, timed out

This happens on every machine that is kickstarted.  It also occurs on
every version of RedHat Linux from 7.3 on.

It takes about 5 minutes to produce those four error messages, after
which the %post script continues on and works properly.

You either need to mount with -o nolock or start a portmapper first. 
There's no portmapper running in the installer environment.
