nfs problem w/debian potato
Being relatively new to debian, I was surprised that my system
will panic when mounting an nfs partition. I checked the man-page
for mount options, read a few FAQ's, and searched through the last
few months of list archives. Nothing was mentioned about this
problem, so it must be something I'm doing.
Basically, I'm trying to mount a nfs partition exported from a
Solaris 2.7 box (using both v2 and v3 nfs) and get a panic error
that freezes the local workstation. Could someone point me to the
document that points out the errors of my ways?
mount -t nfs -o tcp,defaults,bg,soft <hostname>:/var/mail /var/mail
or in /etc/fstab
<hostname>:/var/mail /var/mail nfs defaults,tcp,bg,soft 0 0
Any help appreciated. Thanks.
