Description of problem: Portmap is not available in F7 for use with NFS.
I was trying to get NFS setup, but couldn't because portmap is not available. As
a workaround, I installed the portmap package from RHEL 5, and that worked. I
was able to share out folders over NFS then.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to get nfs sharing out folders on F7
2. yum install portmap
3. that will fail
You are unable to share out folders over NFS because portmap is not in any F7
Be able to install portmap and get nfs working.
Additional info: I tried
# yum list | grep port
but that didn't show portmap available, although other packages with port in the
name showed up.
I was using 32bit F7.
The packages you want to install are rpcbind and nfs-utils.
