Description Arthur Dent 2003-06-13 21:31:08 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
When attempting to mount an NFS share to a mount point that doesn't exist, mount
seems to also report that "NFSv3 not supported!" even if it is.


[root@ts_10_1_30_172 /]# mount /corelog
NFSv3 not supported!
mount: mount point /corelog does not exist
[root@ts_10_1_30_172 /]# mkdir /corelog
[root@ts_10_1_30_172 /]# mount /corelog
[root@ts_10_1_30_172 /]# 

and the relevant /etc/fstab line: /corelog          nfs    
0 0

additional information:
I'm running a monolithic stock redhat kernel.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.attempt to mount an nfs share with nfsvers=3 to a non-existent mount point.

Actual Results:  mount will correctly indicate "mount: mount point /xxx does not
exist" but will also indicate "NFSv3 not supported!" even if NFSv3 is supported.

Expected Results:  mount should not incorrectly state that NFSv3 is not supported.

Some obscure mount bug. Should be partly fixed in rawhide, but that makes the message 
go away in this situation only.
