"nfs warning: mount version older than kernel"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:47 EST
Description of problem:
Every time amd mounts a remote NFS file system, the kernel logs the
message "nfs warning: mount version older than kernel". I realize
this is only a warning, but it is filling our logs because we use amd
on our network continuously.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I am using kernel-2.6.7-1.494.2.2 and am-utils-6.0.9-6.1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure an amd mount point to mount an NFS filesystem
2. Access the mount point
3. Observe the warning on the console and in the logs
Warning message in logs
Quiet behavior for successful mount
I believe this is a bug in amd; it is using an old style mount() call
or data structure. I suspect a minor patch to amd, or possibly just a
recompile against newer headers, would fix it. But I have not
investigated this carefully.
I have this problem with Linux version 126.96.36.199,Fedora Core 1, and
solve that updating modutils and nfs-utils to modutils-2.4.26-16 and
I am already running modutils-2.4.26-16 and nfs-utils-1.0.6-22, so
that is not the problem.
This is a problem with am-utils and the 2.6 kernel in FC2.
