NFS portmap - is it really needed and if so where is it?
2012/3/14 Sian Mountbatten <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I is trying to set up NFS for my LAN. The NFS-HOWTO says that portmap, usually resident in /sbin or /usr/sbin, is essential as it has to be
started first. Well, I don't have it and it does not appear in the
Contents-i386.gz for sid on ftp.uk.debian.org.
So has it been superseded? What do I need to get my NFS server working?
you need rpcbind
BTW nfs-common depends on it
L'unica speranza di catarsi, ammesso che ne esista una,
resta affidata all'istinto di ribellione, alla rivolta non isterilita
in progetti, alla protesta violenta e viscerale.
