Description of problem:
Set up an NFS export & successfully mounted it on a Sun Ultra 5 running Solaris
8, but attempts to access the directory would cause the command (cd, ls) to sit
there until interrupted (ctrl-C). Afterward, attempts to shut down the NFS
service in Limbo would hang. This problem does not occur when mounting the
exported directory on another linux box, or when using RH7.3 as the NFS server.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set up an export & turn on the NFS services
2.Mount the export under Solaris 8 sparc.
3.Try to access the mounted directory under Solaris.
Actual Results: Cannot access directory from solaris client. NFS service won't
shut down - the init script hangs.
Expected Results: Should be able to access the mounted directory under solaris.
Limbo running on a dual Pentium II 350, SMP kernel, 256Mb RAM.
Solaris client is Sun Ultra 5, running Solaris 8.
is the solaris client attempting to use TCP or UDP? If it is using TCP, try to
force UDP instead.
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
