    Starting NFS statd: [FAILED]

    Everytime I boot, I get a "Boot messages" applet in the top panel. The only error message is:*"Starting NFS statd: [FAILED]"

    But in System => Administration => Services, NFS*is disabled and stopped. Of course, I don't use NFS*in any way.

    I've had this boot message for as

    What's the problem?

    TIA!

    Try as root, chkconfig --level 0123456 nfs off. See if you get the error next boot.

    As I thought it would be. That just turned the service off at all run levels. You had stated that it was already turned off but I thought it was worth a shot.

    Or maybe the service is started on previous rcX.d and not in the final one. There's an editor for files in /etc/rc.d/ Maybe I could check with it, but I don't remember the name.

    I*had this problem since I adopted Fedora (f11), I believe. But I saw it only while booting and I thought, since I don't use NFS. I didn't have to care about it. (Do you have this message while you boot too?)

    I now I have this goddamned applet that comes back after every boot and it's just one too many: my panel was filled. And since you apparently can't shorten Applications to Apps, Places to Plcs (or whatever)*and System to Sys, I'd like to remove the icon and learn what all this is about.

    There are many unanswered questions with Linux and the problem is it's hard to know which you should care about.

    This might happen due to existence of the PID of nfslock although the process has died.
    check the nfslock status by;
    service nfslock status

    remove any dead PID associated with it, then check if it present in the start up level, chkconfig --list nfslock
    If found, turn it off.
    On your next reboot, you would not see the boot error (hopefully ! ) :-)

    Thanks,

    I sure hope that they have already figured out their problem since this thread was over 2 years old

    Closed due to being an old thread
