Think my question below is too silly to answere.. that's why no answeres received yet
I was successfully set up and run LTSP4.1 on RH9. The only thing I could not yet figure out after the boot message show xinetd started [ok], the next thing i.e. NFS service, takes 3 minuts approx to start[the hub indicators start blinking occasionally]!But when the internet connection is on it starts in fraction of a second! All other services start quickly. Once started NFS works full speed and the X terminals can download data in zooming speed.
Tried the exportfs -r with the etc/exports contents commented but no change in NFS startup time. I am not sure any thing to do with the dns configuration or not.
I tried to search from the LQ threads but not found any solutions may be I am searching in wrong place.
