Missing files for NFS on bootup....


Hi all,

I'm been wrestling with my NFS connection for a while. When I issue the command /etc/inid.d/nfs start I get a bunch of "unable to register service" errors which are also shown during the bootup sequence. During the bootup sequence the system is also looking for the "libc.so.6" and "libnsl.so.1" files but can't find them. These files look like they are the culprits. When I search for these files they are reported as "broken links" so of course the system can't find them. Anyone have an idea how I can get them back?.... I tried re-installing the glibc RPM but the software told me that it was already installed.... Do I need to override that somehow?

Your best bet would to be

1) Find out what version you have

rpm -q glibc

2) Obtain the same version from an official mirror of Redhat

3) Force the reinstallation of the package

rpm -ivh glibc-<insert full name>-.rpm --force

obviously you would use the full package name in the above action.

OK, the force on the RPM install worked fine but the system still can't find the two files on bootup.....


If I do a file search (with the Fedora file search GUI) I find that the file should be in the /lib directory as a link to something else but the link is listed as "broken".

When I look at the /lib directory it shows that it is linked to libc-2.3.4.so and the link looks valid... but for some reason the system thinks it is broken. Anybody have any ideas why?

Have you tried removing the links, then relinking them? Take note to which file each link is pointing to then remove the link and relink it.

Is portmap running?

I don't think so. The errors I get seem to preclude portmap from running. At least those are the messages I get on startup. I don't see a "portmap" process running.


The specific errors I get when I start NFS are as follow:


/etc/init.d/nfs start
Starting NFS services: [OK]
Starting NFS quotas: Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
rpc.rquotad: unable to register (RQUOTAPROG, RQUOTAVERS, udp). [FAILED]
Starting NFS daemon: [FAILED]
Starting NFS mountd: Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused [FAILED]

Oh yeah, I also re-linked the file. No luck.... system still sees it as a broken link and can't find it.

What kind of error messages do you get when you try to start portmap?

Duudson,

The error messages I get when I start portmap are as follows:

Starting portmap: portmap: error while loading shared libraries: libnsl.so.1: cannot open shared object file: Permission denied


I'm getting the feeling that my system is seriously screwed.... The files are all there (and linked properly) but it can't find them.

Duudson,

How do I figure out if I have SELinux enabled? Is the "fixfiles" entered on the command line? Sorry but I'm still a little new to Linux.....

Duudson,

Looks like that worked! I'll have to read up on the "fixfiles" command. Thanks for the help.
