Description Dan Maas 2000-03-30 02:08:59 UTC
Tried out kernels 2.3.99-pre1 and -pre3 the other day. Booted fine, but
when I tried to mount an NFS volume I got:

Mount version newer than kernel

and the console locked up (other virtual consoles were fine). I had NFS
client support compiled into the kernel. NFS works fine (as a module) with
Redhat's stock 2.2.14 kernel.

I had no trouble with 2.3.99 on RedHat 6.1; this only started happening
when I tried it on a new 6.2 system. Did something change in the "mount"

(I understand 2.3 is anything but "supported" at the moment, but I do
believe something happened to mount)

This isn't happening here... Try the kernel (2.3.99-3) and mount packages from

Comment 2 Dan Maas 2000-04-21 20:42:59 UTC
Upgraded kernel to 2.3.99-pre5. Mount works fine now. Thanks...
