Description raz 2000-05-31 17:55:08 UTC
all updated packages, 6.2 system.  This has been reproduced on a 266mmx,
pIII 500''s, p2 450''s.. bla bla bla.. none of the machines are smp.

having a remote machine mount a NFS export HALTS the machine.  Machine
will respond to pings... but nothing else... console dies.

Been using linux for almost 5 years now... and I hate to be a whiner.. but
ever since 6.0 on redhat, nfs has been a joke.  Come on guys.. you are
acting as the defacto standard for the linux community and you cant produce
a working nfs?  How does it look when people buy their brand new ''linux''
and install it, and have it crash with simple file sharing.  Use userspace
if knfs isn''t stable... I think we has established that.  Don''t even say
"well the other distros are using it" .. debian ''allows you to'' but warns 
the dickens out of ya first.  The simple fact that 6.2 is advertised as 
stable ... and it is not.  I currently use userspace on my laptop 6.2, my
server is debian.. as with my desktop... when I updated to 6.2, aparently
it _forced_ me to use knfs without even asking.  Alot of server admins are
going to be furious with redhat.
