Description Chip Marshall 2002-12-11 15:31:58 UTC
Near as I can tell from reading the documentation and the init.d file for
netmount, if there is an nfs mountpoint in /etc/fstab, it will need portmap,
which should trigger portmap to be started, right?

On my system, at least, this doesn't happen. I have both portmap and netmount on
a custom runlevel called 'docked'. It starts netmount, then portmap, so my NFS
partitions don't get mounted. If I restart netmount, it does mount the NFS
partitions. This is kindof annoying, as it means manually restarting a service
in order to get everything working right.

My netmount script

Here's my /etc/init.d/netmount. Should be standard. I had made some changes to
try and diagnose the problem, but I think I reverted them all.

Ah, I'm running with emerge also claims this is the latest version
available, have the newer versions not been determined to be stable?

I bumped to stable, please update, and it should be fixed for you, thanks.
