rpc portmapper dies ...
Now that I'm using Debian 1.2.x I'm having a problem that never
showed up in Debian 1.1.x -- rpc portmapper dies very very frequently,
and I have to reboot the system since I cannot connect to any host
and cannot open any new window...
"rpcinfo -p" says:
"rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC: Remote system error - Bad address"
and trying to umount non-busy file systems shows the message:
"Cannot MOUNTPROG RPC: RPC: Port mapper failure - RPC: Unable to send"
I was told this kind of message belonged to libc (I was using libc5_5.4.20-1).
Now I downgraded libc to 5.4.13-1. I tried both versions of netbase
that appeared in the "stable" tree (2.06-1 and 2.09-1) and the various
versions of netstd (from 2.08-1 to 2.12-1). And the problem still
Does anybody have an idea why this is happening?? Did anybody have this
problem anytime before??
