Mount NAS4Free as NFS in Slackware 14


I've got a NAS4Free Server on my LAN. I have been accessing it fine with Debian 6 (Squeeze). Now I've converted my Laptop to Slackware and I'd like to be able to access my NAS as a NFS Share like I did in Debian.

I do have libnfs installed. (sahlberg-libnfs-libnfs-1.3.0-0-g47e5a2c.tar)

I created my mount point at: /mnt/NAS4Free with:
Code:
sudo mkdir -p /mnt/NAS4Free
Then I try to mount my NFS Share with:
Code:
sudo mount 192.168.1.250:/mnt/store /mnt/NAS4Free
and I get this ERROR message:
Code:
mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking.
mount.nfs: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local, or start statd.
mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking.
mount.nfs: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local, or start statd.
I searched for rpc.statd, and there are two copies located at:
Code:
/sbin/rpc.statd
/usr/sbin/rpc.statd
What do I need to do to get rpc.statd running so I can access my NFS Share?

When I do:
Code:
ps -ael | grep lockd
ps -ael | grep statd
I get nothing returned for the statd command.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Larry

Your nfs client software probably isn't being started automatically.

Look in /etc/init.d/* to see what nfs startup scripts you have - typically there is one for nfs server and one for nfs client.

You need to start the rpc daemons as root as follows:
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.rpc start
To make the daemons start automatically after boot simply make /etc/rc.d/rc.rpc executable.

Glad you got it fixed. Please go to thread tools and mark this as "SOLVED". It helps people doing web searches in the future to more quickly find solutions when they have the same issue.
