Then I am almost sure that the kernel support is missing. Do you have
the following modules loaded: nfs, lockd, sunrpc? It's also ok to have
them compiled into the kernel: CONFIG_NFS_FS, CONFIG_NFSD, CONFIG_LOCKD,
CONFIG_SUNRPC. BTW, what's your kernel version?

FAM stands for File Alternation Monitor, developed by SGI Inc
(previously for their desktop applications since ~Irix 6.3).

Check the kernel support mentioned above.

It does not matter - yet! - as it needs for connecting to your machine,
but you have problems right with starting NFS services.
