Description Simo Sorce 2009-11-16 16:35:44 EST
When using nfsv4 some daemons are still called rpc.something although not portmap nor remote procedure call is actually performed.

This is confusing, suggestion is to drop the rpc prefix and, maybe, suing the nfs prefix instead.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 13 development cycle.
Changing version to '13'.
