Description of problem:
rpc.svcgssd failed to start, complaining unable to open a
/proc/net/rpc/auth.rpcsec.init/channel file, though the script under
init.d reports status OK.
The /proc/net/rpc/auth.rpcsec.init/channel really doesn't exist,
neither does the directory auth.rpcsec.init. I assume they should be
generated by some kernel modules.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1./usr/sbin/rpc.svcgssd -f -v
WARNING: unable to locate function krb5_gss_internal_release_oid in
krb5 mechanism library: there will be problems if multiple mechanisms
failed to open /proc/net/rpc/auth.rpcsec.init/channel
I installed nfs-utils 1.0.6-46, it says the same thing.
I did a goole, somebody reported a similiar bug under Fedora-2, said
this is fixed in release 1.0.6-30. I am just wondering whether this
bug belongs to nfs-utils or kernel.
BTW, the kernel that runs on my box is: 2.6.9-1.648_ELsmp
The system is: Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3.90 (Nahant)
I found out the cause of this problem.
This happened cause the nfs start up script doesn't load module
After reading nfsv4 mailling list and try it by hand, rpc.svcgssd is
able to start up successfully.
P.S. This bug is reproducable also on Enterprise AS 4.0. Somebody
should fix it, it costs me 3 days.

This is fixed in nfs-utils-22.214.171.124
