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 am running a slackware 11 system. It is a virtual machine pre configured, and I have found
that it doesnt include the nfs module. When I log in I get:
root@darkmoon:~# mount 192.168.0.2:/arqui/netnews /mnt -t nfs
mount: unknown filesystem type 'nfs'
I googled and found that the nfs module is not loaded:
Module Size Used by
I then tryed the following:
root@darkmoon:~# modprobe nfs
WARNING: Error inserting sunrpc (/lib/modules/2.6.18/kernel/net/sunrpc/sunrpc.ko): Invalid module format
WARNING: Error inserting lockd (/lib/modules/2.6.18/kernel/fs/lockd/lockd.ko): Invalid module format
FATAL: Error inserting nfs (/lib/modules/2.6.18/kernel/fs/nfs/nfs.ko): Invalid module format
I am as you could see running the kernel 2.6.18, and I have installed the kernel-modules-2.6.18-i486-1 package.
I ahve installed also the module-init-tools-3.2.2-i486-2 package. As I have kernel 2.6.18 and the kernel modules 2.6.18 I can't understand why it is saying that the module has invalid format, it was suposed to work .. or I am missing something?
I would like to have the nfs module loaded, and at this moment I cant compile a module with this compiled. I have to try nfs as a loadable module.
I tryed searching the web but I could not find nothing that helped.
If someone can help me I would be gratefull.
Thanks for any help
I checked the three files and they do exist and are placed where the modprobe results tell they do. I'll try to make the modules, but I think this prety strange as I used the oficial kernel modules package from the slackware site, downloaded in a known mirror.
Any more help is apreciated.
If you compiled the kernel or load the source then from a console;
cat /usr/src/linux/.config |grep NFS
#The output should be something like;
# CONFIG_NFS_V3_ACL is not set
# CONFIG_NFSD_V3_ACL is not set
Note that for the NFS 3 & 4 are compiled in (static), this is for linux-2.6.13.
