rpc.lockd fails to start. On startup it prints the message
lockdsvc: Invalid argument
Are you using RedHat's kernel, or a custom kernel?
If custom, I'd bet it's missing the compile-time support for kernel-nfs. Only
if the option "Prompt for development drivers" is checked under "Code maturity
options", then you'll be able to enable the "NFS server support" option
under "Network File Systems".
I use the custom kernel (2.2.13) but I've turned on "Prompt for development
drivers" as well as "NFS server support".
I have this same exact problem when trying
to build/run the 2.2.13 kernel with rh6.1
I have "Prompt for development drivers" ON.
I've tried both built-in and modular nfs
server support. "Work like SUN" I've always
Still, when I try to invoke rpc.lockd, it fails
with "Invalid Argument". Does the stock rh6.1
kernel (2.2.12-20) have patches applied to it
that are not in the main line of kernel development?
Why does rpc.lockd work fine with 2.2.12-20 and fail

This is not a problem with newer NFS code; the kernel will start lockd
automatically when needed (in fact, the rawhide nfs-utils init script
only starts statd.)
