FC8: Booting off NFS root file system fails at Remounting (takes a long time)
I've been running into a few problems after attempting to load the FC8 onto a client from another FC8 server. Both the kernel and file system are loaded/mounted from the server. This seems to be working, but there are error messages in the boot up sequence when the kernel tries to remount the root file system to read+write. It takes a long time then fails.
Here is the error I am seeing:
*** beg error mesg ***
Remounting root filesystem in read-write mode: failed
mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking. Either use "-o nolocks" to keep locks local, or start statd.
*** end error mesg ***
At the end of the boot process I am able to access/read/write to the NFS file system, but the boot process pauses at the error message for a long time.
Fedora Core 8
Does anybody know of a fix to this problem?
Thank you very much.
