Description Jens Petersen 2009-10-02 04:29:52 EDT
Description of problem:
After doing a fresh rawhide install yesterday I can no longer
mount local nfs3 exports like I used to be able to.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rawhide
2. try to mount an nfs3 server
# showmount -e fileserver
# mount fileserver:/exports/pub /mnt
Actual results:
mount.nfs: mounting fileserver:/exports/pub failed, reason given by server:
  No such directory

Expected results:
nfs server to mount or at least an intelligible error like
"nfs v3 server: please use '-o v3' mount option".

Additional info:
I do hope fallback to version 3 can be done -
there are still many nfs3 server around in production.
