Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have just updated an old slackware system to version 8.1. Everything seems to be operating but nfs. I'm not familiar with slackware thus, I'm not sure to do. All nfs files seem to be in place, /usr/sbin/nfsd, /usr/sbin/mountd, etc. However when I go to start nfsd I get the following error:
nfssvc-function not implemented
Do I need to compile a new kernal??? Like I said earlier I'm new to Slackware, but not to UNIX.
Are you trying to mount an NFS export from another server or are you trying to act as an NFS server?
In either case you'll need to have a kernel that support NFS so this may be part of your problem. Typically you'll just need to get the necessary kernel built, then edit /etc/exports, then run /etc/rc.d/rc.nfsd and thats that. Exactly what do you run to get the nfssvc-function not implemented error message?
I'm operating a NFS server. All files are installed on the server, and the exports file has been edited. I get the error when I issue the command /usr/sbin/nfsd from the command line, it is also in the /etc/rc.d/inetd file.
The problem is that someone else updated the server to 8.1 of slackware, and I don't know what they did or not do. Thus, what worked prior to the update does not work now.
If I have to update the kernel, what I need to know is the step by step procedure to actually do this. What SW do I need to get from slackware (if any), and what commands do I enter to get the new "nfs" into the updated kernel.
and all the nfs daemons started up, and the filesystems in the export file are now being exported. Question is where do I put this in the system startup scripts, so that upon reboot nfs will automatically start.
You shouldn't need to do anything to get NFS to run at boot time. That rc.nfsd script is called everytime you boot. It checks for entries in /etc/exports. If there are any entries then it runs, otherwise it just terminates. Try just restarting the machines and see if it works as it should.
I got a little problem with nfs:
I have 2 boxes: box1 with mandrake 9.1 box2 with mdk 9.0
I can mount files in mdk 9.0 from mdk 9.1
when I try the reverse everything seems fine (entry in fstab too) but when I do cd to the mount point I get : permission denied
I am root on both boxes (same id, gid and passwd).
When I do ls -l I get drwx------ on the mount point, weird?
Could it be any default option that I missed?
Any ideas will be welcome.
thanks in advance.
