I have installed Fedora 14 on a Dell laptop which I am using for a host to an embedded board. I need to get NFS working so that the board can mount the file system. I installed NFS using the command su -c 'yum -y install nfs-utils system-config-nfs'. I think this went well. I confirmed this with rpm -q nfs-utils and it prints back nfs-utils-1.2.5-5.fc16.i686, so I think it is OK. So far so good. For the other package I get system-config-nfs-1.3.51-2.fc15.noarch.
I set up an exports file in /etc.
Next I tried to use the NFS by typing su -c 'service nfs restart' and I get "Failed to issue method call: Unit nfs.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status nfs.service' for details.
systemctl status nfs.service returns " Loaded: error (Reason: No suh file or directory) Active: inactive (dead). So it looks to me like it is not running at all. I have also tried start and stop. Start does the same thing, interestingly stop seems to at least hit a valid call.
I also tried re-installing the NFS utilities and I get the same thing. Running install again returns "Nothing to do".
I got most of this information from this page http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Admini...uide_Draft/NFS
which seems like it should be a reliable source of information.
At this point, I am pretty much out of ideas. If I could fix this that would be great. If not, then I'm thinking of trashing this version of Fedora and going with a later one. Got any ideas?
