Description Vivek Khera 2009-01-06 17:10:01 UTC

I upgraded a system (with a custom kernel) from 6.3-REL to 6.4-REL and on
reboot the nfs.lockd program reported the following warning:

 Can't find or load kernel support for rpc.lockd - using non-kernel

The man page doesn't indicate how to correct this problem.

This same issue seems to apply to 7.1-REL also.


Add a note to the rpc.lockd man page recommending to enable the NFSLOCKD
kernel option, or build the nfslockd kernel module.

Build a custom kernel that doesn't build the nfslockd module nor enable the
NFSLOCKD kernel option and run rpc.lockd.
