Portmap is just so obnoxious

Posted 08-01-2006 at 08:51 AM by baikonur

fixed some things on my Laptop yesterday - it's got SOUND now.
also played around in my next Kernel's configuration. Like:
CONFIG_HZ_1000 and ACPI_ASUS enabled and low latency and
more fancy stuff.
I shut down the system, but later on I rebooted to do some more
stuff. But... the stupid portmapper was hanging everytime, trying

Basic Things to Know When Switching to a Linux Desktop

Posted 08-01-2006 at 03:57 AM by raldz

NFS Portmap: RPC: Program not registered

@ http://nfs.sourceforge.net/nfs-howto/ar01s03.html I learned that rpc.mountd handles the initial mount requests.

my own blog, eh?

[this ist my blog,
there are many like it,
but this one is mine...]

so this would be a good place to keep some
of the things that usually slip out of my
mind before I need them for the 2nd time.
like: xfs won't work with grub prior to grub-0.95.

or things I want myself to remember that I want
to learn about them.
like: I want to find out what portmap really does.

Difference between /proc files and /dev files

Posted 07-30-2006 at 03:03 AM by m.anju

Hi all,

I want to know that what is the difference between /proc files and /dev files, since both are used for interfacing between user space and kernel space for accessing the hardware.

thanx
