Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 453046
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:56:20 EST
I don't use NFS on my system. But for some reason nfs-utils is installed. I just
started a yum update. Had to kill nfslock because my yum update was hanging. See
 for details.
<explicit language about the quality of our package management tools removed>
Anyway, our packaging guidelines states something like this: You should never
ever under any circumstance start services in %post / %pre / etc. as it'll break
a number scenarios including chroot installs (think live cd creation etc. etc.).
I believe this bug is also present in F9.

Actually this is not true
# chkconfig --list nfslock
nfslock 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
Apparently nfslock is started even on desktop live cd installs. Yay. Guess we
need to fix the desktop live cd's.
Also note the nfslock service is need for the NFS mounts to
work correctly. Turning it off could cause hangs or failures
if people do NFS mounts from the live CD.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
