no rpc.lockd on slackware 13


I can't mount nfs directory without option "-o nolock"

NFS server is slackware 11 and client is Slackware 13 (full installation).

I tested with Centos 5.4 and works fine. Using which rpc.lockd print is no rpc.lockd and slackware 11 is /usr/sbin/rpc.lockd.

following services starting on client using rc.rpc ( rpc.statd and rpc.portmap )

rpc.lockd was removed after Slackware 11.
You need to start /etc/rc.d/rc.rpc

$ mount backend:/mnt/myth/5TB /mnt/tmp/
mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking.
mount.nfs: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local, or start statd.
$ rpcinfo -p
rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC: Remote system error - Connection refused

$ sh /etc/rc.d/rc.rpc start
Starting RPC portmapper:  /sbin/rpc.portmap
Starting RPC NSM (Network Status Monitor):  /sbin/rpc.statd
$ mount backend:/mnt/myth/5TB /mnt/tmp/

$ rpcinfo -p

Changelog for Slackware 12
n/nfs-utils-1.1.0-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to nfs-utils-1.1.0. This no longer
tries to use "rpc.lockd" (nor contains it), so be sure to upgrade to the new
versions of the init scripts. Thanks to Jonathan Woithe for the hint about
linking with -lnsl after -lwrap, and for passing along a small patch for a
memory leak in mountd.

The best way is to make /etc/rc.d/rc.nfsd executable with 'chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.nfsd'. All the appropriate NFS daemons will then be started at boot time.
