Description Enrico Scholz 2003-04-14 14:48:21 EDT
Description of problem:

portmap requires files from /usr/lib which may be outside the root-partition:

| $ ldd /sbin/portmap 
|        libwrap.so.0 => /usr/lib/libwrap.so.0 (0x40031000)

When having an NFS-mounted /usr directory, the booting fails because portmap
(which is required by NFS) can not be started.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount /usr via NFS
2. reboot

Actual results:

Starting portmapper: portmap: error while loading shared libraries:
libwrap.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Mounting NFS filesystems: <<< MACHINE HANGS >>>

Expected results:

portmapper will be started and NFS filesystems will be mounted.

portmap now statically links with libwrap
