Description Samuel Irlapati 2005-07-26 09:32:11 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4 Description of problem: I think there is a problem with locks. I have tried re-installing several times and still keep coming up with the same problem. My home disk is mounted from an HP-UX machine using nfs. When i most programs, probably programs that use gconf, the program does not start, it just hangs. Looking in the /var/log/messages, i see the error "Jul 25 15:02:32 ustr-irlapasj-1 kernel: lockd: server 22.214.171.124 not responding, still trying" Please help, for now my account seems useless. I use this at work. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): nfs-utils-1.0.7-8, How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Start gedit in an account where the home disk is nfs mounted. 2. 3. Actual Results: Gedit never starts Expected Results: gedit should have started Additional info:

Would it be possible to get a bzip2 network trace of this problem? Something similar to 'ethereal -w /tmp/data.pcap ; bzip2 /tmp/data.pcap'
Comment 2 Samuel Irlapati 2005-07-27 15:10:28 EDT
Created attachment 117207 [details] data saved from ethereal I got this output by opening the ethereal gui, watching on eth0, waiting till i got the message "Jul 27 12:58:54 ustr-irlapasj-1 kernel: lockd: server 126.96.36.199 not responding, still trying" in /var/log/messages, then saving the data and exiting out off the program. I had to do it this way since ethereal for me brings up a gui. If you need any other output, do not hesitate to ask.
Comment 3 Steve Dickson 2005-07-28 10:14:54 EDT
The ethereal trace show exactly what's being logged that the client is sending the lock request, and re-sending the request (about 4 or 5 times) until (I assuming) the application quits or somebody type ctrl-C.... So the next step is to see why the server is ignoring the lock request. Is there anything errors being logged on the server?
Comment 4 Samuel Irlapati 2005-07-28 10:44:39 EDT
Nothing gets logged in the server. It is an HP-UX machine. $(uname -a)=HP-UX trj5000d B.11.11 U 9000/785 2004190631 unlimited-user license That is the server. Do you need anything else?
Comment 5 Steve Dickson 2005-07-28 15:32:36 EDT
Yeah... way to reproduce this... ;-) Unfortunately we don't have that type of server inhouse.... I wounder if it has something to do with how the filesystems are exported.... Does HP have an 'exportfs -v' equivalent?
Comment 6 Samuel Irlapati 2005-07-28 15:54:00 EDT
This worked with FC3, i started to get this problem only with FC4. Also nothing changed on the server end. They do not have an exportfs command. They do have an export command.
Comment 7 Samuel Irlapati 2005-07-29 14:18:30 EDT
I moved my home account from being on a HP-UX machine to a Linux machine, and the problem i had with nfs locks disappeared. Thak you for your help. I decided to move my home disk space so that i could get you more info on the nfs locks problem, instead of having to rely on HP-UX. Looks like it worked out for the best.

Well thats good to hear... so I'm going to close out this bz report....
