Description Dan Muntz 2007-05-23 13:59:42 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; (R1 1.5); .NET CLR 2.0.50727)

Description of problem:
The startup script of idmapd checks to see if the sunrpc module is loaded, and fails if it doesn't find the module.  Unfortunately, this test also fails if sunrpc is statically linked into the kernel, preventing idmapd from starting.  This bug is also in FC*.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a kernel with sunrpc linked statically
2. Try to start idmapd with the rc script

Actual Results:
idmapd fails to start, reporting that the sunrpc module is not loaded

Expected Results:
idmapd should have started

Question: when sunrpc is not a module, who or what
mounts /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs? 
Comment 3 Dan Muntz 2007-05-23 17:24:41 EDT
I have it in /etc/fstab (I think CITI has this in some of their documentation).
Comment 4 Steve Dickson 2007-06-07 10:19:49 EDT
hmm... maybe we the initscript can check for the existance
of /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs if it does not exist
then do the modprobes..
