Description Adrian Likins 2000-08-19 04:33:12 UTC
Not sure why, but the nfs-utils package starts up
nfslock by default. nfs does not get started
by default however. Not sure if that really
makes anysense (especially since the nfs init
scripts exit if theres no /etc/exports, but
the nfslock always runs)

Consider this has been recently exploited,
perhaps it would be wise to not start
it by default. This will be the case
for "Network Workstation" as well
as "NFS server", the former in particular
probabaly doesnt make sense.

Or was the "the kernel does/doesnt start
this" debate resolved?

Michael, can somebody from rhkernel team take care of this?

Needed for nfsfs, which is on by default.
