Summary     : NFS utlilities and supporting daemons for the kernel NFS
Description :
The nfs-utils package provides a daemon for the kernel NFS server and
related tools, which provides a much higher level of performance than the
traditional Linux NFS server used by most users.

This package also contains the showmount program.  Showmount queries the
mount daemon on a remote host for information about the NFS (Network File
System) server on the remote host.  For example, showmount can display the
clients which are mounted on that host.
Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-07-18 09:46:47 EDT
What is the output of "rpm -q kernel"?
Comment 2 timothymoore 2000-07-18 17:54:17 EDT
# rpm -q kernel

Apparently requirements check looked at rpm database which found the
initial RH6.1 installation.  The kernel has been upgraded manually many
times since.

# rpm -qp --requires /net/asus/kits/Rh62/nfs-util*.rpm
kernel >= 2.2.14
portmap >= 4.0

'--nodeps' allowed a successful installation as all other requirements were

14201 can be closed IMO.  Suggest that kernel version dependencies are a
special case that might warrant checking outside of RPM database.

Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-08-01 12:19:31 EDT
Agreed.  RPM dependency checking can only be expected to work perfectly if you
install everything using RPM, which makes sure that RPM's database matches what
you actually have installed.
