Description Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-26 18:34:51 EST
Linuxconf always wants to restart NFS. This is a bug in
/etc/rc.d/init.d/nfs as this sysv script is of type "probe".
Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-03-29 11:46:59 EST
as of knfsd-1.2-3, when nfs is stopped, /etc/rc.d/init.d/nfs probe
will correctly return 'start' not 'restart'. Do you mean you never get
the 'reload' to be returned?
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-29 11:56:59 EST
Does "/etc/rc.d/init.d/nfs probe" print nothing (not "nothing",
rather literally nothing at all) and return success when nothing
needs to be done because the configuration is up to date?
Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-29 12:01:59 EST
Yes, even when nothing needs to be done, the probe command always
prints "restart"
Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-29 12:13:59 EST
Fixed in knfsd-1.2-5
