Description of problem:
HAving problems to run the NFS services, using FC2 and the vanilla
kernel when nfs is not built as modules, but if it has been compiled
in. In This case, all tries to mount such an nfs server filesystem
fails with "permission denied".

If I build the NFS filesystem on a module based, all is OK.

With the no-module solution of vanilla kernel 2.6.6 in FC1, I had no

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install FC2 with an vanilla kernel where NFS is not made on a module
2.Start FC2
3.Try to mount some dir from a remote machine.


Actual Results:   Mount fails from this remote machine with
"permission denied"

Expected Results:  Mount OK.

Additional info:

The problem disappears if compiling NFS on a module base in the
vanilla kernel.

Added the following to your fstab:

nfsd    /proc/fs/nfsd           nfsd            auto,defaults  0 0
sunrpc  /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs rpc_pipefs      auto,defaults  0 0

This should take care of the problem

I'm having the same problem with kernel 2.6.13 in FC3.  The fstab entries do not seem to help.  
Additionally, /etc/rc.d/init.d/rpcidmapd bails out when it tries to 'modprobe sunrpc' which is included 
into the kernel (CONFIG_SUNRPC=y) when CONFIG_NFS_FS=y.

never mind... it's working fine with the sunrpc mount line
