Description Alan Cox 2002-10-02 18:46:11 UTC
The logs show about 50 attempts to mount the NFS server in rapid succession when
8.0 is doing a PXE NFS install. Initially I had the config wrong and got about
50 refused. When I fixed it I still got a long series of succeeded log entries.

The server is also running 8.0

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-10-25 20:57:28 UTC
What is your NFS server running, I can't reproduce this here locally

Comment 2 Alan Cox 2002-10-25 21:02:13 UTC
8.0 on a dual PIV Xeon (intel eepro100)

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2003-07-09 05:00:57 UTC
Still have never reproduced here, but updated the nfsmount code used by the
loader, so if you see with more recent trees (later than today or so), reopen.

Comment 4 Alan Cox 2003-07-09 07:40:04 UTC
 Sorry my fault on that one - it turned out to be a via ethernet driver bug. Its
fixed in the 2.4.22pre3/2.4.21-ac4 kernel trees
