how to get rid of the warning message about nfs?
hello, all
my box os is slackware-10.1, and I update kernel to
if I mount a directory via nfs
dmesg will propmt:


nfs warning: mount version older than kernel
I think if I update the util-linux package can aviod the message above,
but I find the package util-linux-2.12p-i486-1 is the newest version?!

thanks for any idea.

Why? If its mounting you shouldn't worry about it. Or you can make both the server and client equivalent with same versions.

thx Moderator.
but my server and client both is nfs-utils-1.0.7-i486-1.
can anyone give me more idea ?

i just google for "nfs warning: mount version older than kernel" and apparently it has to do with your version of mount rather than your nfs-utils version.

to reiterate trickykid's question: are you getting any hangs, etc., or is this simply a cosmetic issue?

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I get that error, too. But only after I recompile the kernel.

Maybe touch /bin/mount as root?

Nah, that doesn't work. Don't know how to solve it. But NFS works anyway.

Hi all,

I got the same problem. I find a lot of: "nfs warning: mount version older than kernel" messages in my syslog.

Particially nfs works fine, but sometimes I have to reboot the server, because mounted machines are not "responding"

I use Slack 10.0 with Kernel 2.6.9, util-linux-2.12h-i486-1, mount-2.12p
The machine serves as a Fileserver, where different other machines are mounted via nfs.

Any thoughts to get this completely fixed?
