Description pjt 2000-05-16 15:39:09 UTC
Entering a command of the form:

$ mount host:/directory /mnt/tst

gives the error:

mount: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused

NFS mounts from other Linux, *BSD and Digital Unix servers works fine.

Investigation is hampered by not having a source rpm that matches the
distributed binary:

$ rpm -q -f /bin/mount

whereas the source rpm is: mount-2.10f-1.src.rpm

A 'mount' program built from the above source rpm does work.  A comparison
of the 'strings' output from the distributed '/bin/mount' and the one built
from source shows considerable difference.

I thought the GPL required that source be distributed, or available?

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-05-16 16:06:59 UTC
Red Hat Linux 6.2 shipped with mount-2.10f, not 2.10k.
Are you sure you didn't get that mount RPM from rawhide,
or someplace similar?
