Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 323521
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:17 EST
Description of problem:
Installing nfsserver does not install portmap or an other daemon with the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 7 CD, or DVD, then select ftp and continue to install
from a server within the internet.
2. Install nfsserver using "yum install nfsserver"
3. Update to the latest available patches using "yum update"
nfsserver is installed, but portmap is missing. Trying to mount an
exported directory will fail. Within the logs you may find something like
"server xyz not reachable".
If you are looking for a running "portmap" there is none.
If you are looking for an installable package "portmap" there is none.
portmap (or something similar) being installed as a dependency to
nfsserver, started before nfsd being started.
portmap within Fedora 7 packages!
It seems "portmap" was available some time ago, but it being removed by
one of the updates since 1st October. Maybe there is a better alternative,
but this isn't configured automatically...
Bad side effect: nfs mounts and exports will not work anymore!
portmap has been renamed to rpcbind some time ago. nfs-utils depends on it so it
shoul dbe installed already in your system. You might have to enable it to run
at startup though.
Uhh. My fault.
