NFS mount on startup


Hi,

I'm having trouble getting my nfs mounts to mount on
startup (slackware 10.1, kernel 2.6). But when I log in
and manually type "mount -a -t nfs" it works just fine.

I noticed that rc.inet2 has this comment in it:
Code:
Note, that when this script is used to also fire
up any important remote NFS disks (like the /usr
directory), care must be taken to actually
have all the needed binaries online _now_ ...
... but I'm not sure which binaries it's referring to.

After boot dmesg contains no mention of nfs. After I
manually mount nfs (which works fine), dmesg contains
the warning "nfs warning: mount version older than
kernel". I doubt that's the problem though.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
lantern

maybe try replace defaults with :
rsize=8192,wsize=8192,hard,intr

see if that brings something good

That wasn't it but I figured it out.

I was bringing up my NIC from rc.local instead of rc.modules,
and since rc.inet2 gets called before rc.local the network
wasn't up yet for the nfs mount call.

Thanks for your help.
