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
$ 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?
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?
