NFS questions


Hi there here is my kernel config with regards to nfs:
grep NFS .config
CONFIG_NFS_FS=m
CONFIG_NFS_V3=y
# CONFIG_NFS_V3_ACL is not set
# CONFIG_NFS_V4 is not set
# CONFIG_NFS_DIRECTIO is not set
# CONFIG_NFSD is not set
CONFIG_NFS_COMMON=y

Is this sufficient to run an nfs client?.Thankx in advance.Sorry for not using code blocks but i don't know how.

To use code tags put [_code] without the underscore before your text,
and [_/code] without the underscore after your text.

My NFS client works fine with this in the kernel:
Code:
mingdao@silas:~$ less kernel/linux-2.6.25.1/.config | grep -i nfs
CONFIG_NFS_FS=y
CONFIG_NFS_V3=y
CONFIG_NFS_V3_ACL=y
# CONFIG_NFS_V4 is not set
# CONFIG_NFS_DIRECTIO is not set
# CONFIG_NFSD is not set
CONFIG_NFS_ACL_SUPPORT=y
CONFIG_NFS_COMMON=y

My stock kernel has pretty much all of the NFS stuff included:
Code:
CONFIG_EXT3_FS_NFS4ACL=y
CONFIG_FS_NFS4ACL=y
CONFIG_NFS_FS=m
CONFIG_NFS_V3=y
CONFIG_NFS_V3_ACL=y
CONFIG_NFS_V4=y
CONFIG_NFS_DIRECTIO=y
CONFIG_NFSD=m
CONFIG_NFSD_V2_ACL=y
CONFIG_NFSD_V3=y
CONFIG_NFSD_V3_ACL=y
CONFIG_NFSD_V4=y
CONFIG_NFSD_TCP=y
CONFIG_NFS_ACL_SUPPORT=m
CONFIG_NFS_COMMON=y
CONFIG_NCPFS_NFS_NS=y
You want the NFSD options for V3. I would also recommend ACL support. The CONFIG_NFS_DIRECTIO=y option is present in all of the default configs in my kernel source including vanilla.
