Automount problem with backports nfs-common and squeeze initscripts
I'd like to report a problem that happens when you install nfs-common from debian-backports:
The dependencies state that rpcbind is needed, so it gets installed instead of portmap. Mounting an NFS volume requires that rpcbind is running.
However /etc/network/if-up.d/mountnfs has no knowledge of rpcbind but only of portmap, so when it attempts to mount the NFS volume it fails because no portmap-like program is running.
While automounting is broken, mounting a volume manually has no issues once the system has started, as rpcbind gets loaded afterwards.
As of now i'm using "ln -s /etc/init.d/rpcbind /etc/init.d/portmap" as a workaround, but it's quite dirty.
If you need any other informations or would like to discuss the issue please keep me in CC as i'm not subscribed to the mailing list.
Thank you for your attention
