nfssvc: Function not implemented
I get this error when trying to start rpc.nfsd. Apparently there's some setting in the system somewhere that turns on NFS, but I sure don't know what it is. I almost posted this in the Slackware forum, since I use Slackware 8.0, and everyone I've mentioned this to has said, "Use chkconfig," but since Slackware doesn't use that utility, there has to be some other more general way of turning it on. Anyone have any idea?

Is NFS supported by your kernel?
If it ain't, you won't be getting no NFS at all.

I suppose it should be know as the "No File Service" until then. :-)

Yes, NFS is supported in the kernel
NFS is turned on in the kernel, I checked the /usr/src/linux/.config file. There is something else that must be causing this error. This seems like it would be a pretty widely known error message. I'm surprised at the difficulty in finding help on this subject... especially from search engines.

Just a thought...
nfs.portmap is loaded already, right?

There are three bits to load for a full NFS: rpc.portmap, rpc.nfsd and rpc.mountd. IIRC mountd isn't necessary unless you're mounting nfs volumes on the system, but I'm not an NFS expert either. :-)

Yup, rpc.portmap running...
It's when I issue the rpc.nfsd command that I get the error. rpc.mountd also runs, just no nfsd. This is really starting to chap my hide.

Send it to the top
Still looking for answers on this problem. I won't go away until it does. :) Anyone got any ideas?
