Description of problem:
Upgrade to 2.4.9-6 kernel in RH7.1 makes VMware guest running Win98 unable to see NFS mounted volumes.
All local volumes are visible. Downgrade to 2.4.3-12 kernel solves the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to 2.4.9-6 kernel
2. Rebuild VMware 2.0.4 - 1142 (the build number is not crucial) modules and install
3. Try to access an NFS mounted volume from the guest OS - impossible
Actual Results: No connection to NFS mounted volumes
Expected Results: NFS mounted volumes should be seamlessly accessible
I tried different builds of the VMware. The problem did not change. Downgrade of the kernel to the 2.4.3-12 solves the problem
We're currently investigation an NFS issue; however to make sure it's not VMWare
can you confirm normal TCP connections do work ?
Everything works OK (NetBIOS and TCP/IP connections) with the exception of an access to an NFS mounted volumes.
I can see the directory but I cannot open it.
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
