Description Glen A. Foster 2004-02-19 11:25:27 EST
Description of problem: after creating an entry in /etc/fstab to set
up an NFS mount, I get the following error with an NFS mount -- the
mount does succeed, but something should change to get rid of the message:

nfs warning: mount version older than kernel

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -q kernel util-linux
kernel-2.6.1-1.138.2.1
util-linux-2.12pre-3

How reproducible: very

Steps to Reproduce:
1. perform an NFS mount on RHEL4
Comment 1 Elliot Lee 2004-02-23 16:15:22 EST
It's OK for the message to be there. It's just a warning.
Comment 2 Glen A. Foster 2004-02-23 17:07:12 EST
Strange this is not a bug.  Every other NFS mount warning I've ever
reported was closed FIXED, not NOTABUG.  Are you certain?  Is this the
behavior RHEL4 will exhibit?  If so, we need to document this
somewhere; if not, please consider re-opening this defect and closing
it when an appropriate fix is implemented.

Comment 5 Elliot Lee 2004-02-24 10:41:34 EST
Unfortunately it's the kernel that prints out this message, so I can't
just disable it in /bin/mount. The kernel prints it out when the mount
program isn't as recent as the kernel's NFS mount structure...
According to the source code, this message will go away when we start
using the >= 2.6.2 kernel - /bin/mount just doesn't support the
particular NFS mount structure found in early 2.6.[01] kernels.
