Re: KDE/Konqeror - mounting NFS export hangs Konquerer and K-MenuI

Hello Kevin,

no, it does'nt need to connect over a DNS server, its running on a small home 
LAN.  I noticed that my lo interface wasnn't active after cobaco suggested 
looking at that.  Once I had fixed that in /etc/network/interfaces I could 
use KDE again.

Since I can only mount the NFS export using an ip address for my server 
(athlon), I was looking around in the various network configuration HOWTOs 
but couldn't really figure out how to get hostnames resolved on my LAN.  I 
have a router which can tell me what devices are attached and what their 
hostnames and ip addresses are, so isn't there some way that mount can access 
that information to resolve the hostname ips?  Anyway, the real problem with 
KDE has been solved.
