s you said in the next message, on the client.
I\ve looked at the specs for this option (in man 5 rcS) and I don't see
how it will help. It merely delays the time the filesystem is mounted
until later in the boot process. However, I boot it manually, long after
the boot is finished.
Still, I'll try it tomorrow, and see if it works. All may not be as
No. Wait. The /etc/fstab line is
172.25.1.11:/farhome /farhome nfs defaults,user,auto,exec 1 1
So ot's mounted automatically *and* allowed to be user-mounted. (I
wonser if these options conflict.) So when I mount it by hand it's after
(presumably) it has already (presumably) failed to mount ....
Definitely to try it tomorrow when I'm awake and nobody's relying on
