screenshot of odd behaviour
Description of problem:
I've disabled IPv6 ("install ipv6 /bin/true" in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf).
I wish to mount an IPv4 nfs4 share. It only works after loading the ipv6 kernel module. But that means I need to worry about IPv6, and I'm not ready to do that.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. /etc/init.d/rpcidmapd start
2. mount -v -t nfs4 brie:/test /mnt
mount.nfs4: mount(2): Cannot allocate memory
mount.nfs4: Cannot allocate memory
brie:/test on /mnt type nfs4 (rw)
Googling suggested ipv6 "fixed" this. I've no idea why, and I don't consider it a fix.
