Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 240520
Outdated linux/nfs_mount.h header file with different NFS_MOUNT_VERSION value
Last modified: 2010-10-22 11:08:48 EDT
Description of problem:
The linux/nfs_mount.h header file from glibc-kernheaders-2.4-9.1.100.EL rpm does
not tally with the linux/nfs_mount.h header file from kernel-2.6.9-55.EL rpm. As
a result, the am-utils-6.0.9-15.RHEL4 rpm that is built against an older version
of linux/nfs_mount.h, will trigger a lot of warning messages "kernel: nfs
warning: mount version older than kernel" in the logs.
[root@padme linux]# pwd
[root@padme linux]# grep -r NFS_MOUNT_VERSION .
./nfs_mount.h:#define NFS_MOUNT_VERSION 6
[root@padme include]# pwd
[root@padme include]# grep NFS_MOUNT_VERSION ./linux/nfs_mount.h
#define NFS_MOUNT_VERSION 4
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install am-utils
2. tail -f /var/log/messages &
3. service amd start
You will be able to see the warning messages.
"kernel: nfs warning: mount version older than kernel" messages appeared in logs.
"kernel: nfs warning: mount version older than kernel" messages should not
appear in logs.
By using the kernel headers from a more recent kernel, and rebuilding the amd
RPM would help resolve this problem.
