Description John Gotts 2001-04-18 00:46:33 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19 i686; en-US; 0.8.1)

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,
including amd.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start the amd service.
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-04-18 03:49:19 EDT
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.
Comment 2 John Gotts 2001-04-18 05:45:17 EDT
I did, on all the machines in question.
Comment 3 John Gotts 2001-04-24 21:29:58 EDT
These messages also litter the consoles of our client machines.  Luckily 99% of
the time our users use X.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2001-05-07 13:19:44 EDT
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.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2001-05-07 13:22:53 EDT
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?
Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2001-05-07 13:26:12 EDT
This seems to be a dup of

bug #37532
Comment 7 C. Ray Ng 2001-08-24 19:04:36 EDT
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.
Comment 8 John Gotts 2001-08-24 20:52:46 EDT
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?
Comment 9 Arjan van de Ven 2001-08-26 09:17:28 EDT
The message is harmless, although obviously annoying.
Comment 10 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:38:57 EDT
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
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
