The new 2.2.19 updates for 6.2 and 7.0 cause several things to trigger the
following message: kernel: nfs warning: mount version older than kernel,
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start the amd service.
This is the reason we also made updated packages for nfsutils / mount to go with
the kernel. Please make sure you have those installed as well.
I did, on all the machines in question.
These messages also litter the consoles of our client machines. Luckily 99% of
the time our users use X.
I can verify that with:
installed on many of our machines, I also receive the
"kernel: nfs warning: mount version older than kernel"
messages logged every time the client mounts an NFS dir.
Under further investigation, this ONLY occurs on client machines when the NFS
dirs are mounted via the am-utils automounter... and NOT when I mount things by
hand or via autofs. Does am-utils need to be refreshed?
This seems to be a dup of
Are there any workaround existed yet? I rebuilt the am-utils 6.0.3
againt the current kernel source 2.2.19-6.2.7, but it didn't help.
Latest am-utils, like 6.0.6, requires db1-devel which requires
newer version of glibc, so can't do that either.
Where did you find am-utils 6.0.6? I didn't know 6.0.6 was available for Red
Hat 6.2. Do(es) the changelog(s) for 6.0.6 indicate(s) that this bug was fixed?
The message is harmless, although obviously annoying.
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases,
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
