booting live system from nfs-user-server fails at nfsmount
when booting the live cd via pxelinux (tftp) and nfs (using nfs-user-server), mounting the nfs share fails with
+ nfsmount -o nolock -o ro 10.0.0.
rpc failed: 2
this can be fixed by replacing nfsmount with normal mount in initrd.gz's scripts/casper at line 215 (gutsy and hardy). the problem exists at least since feisty and is still present in hardy alpha 4.
i've attached the casper.log file generated.
in case it is important, you can look up details of the process at , writing which i discovered the bug.
updated 2008-02-29: it turned out this only happens with nfs-user-server, so if it's a server side issue, someone who can judge nfs problems please close this bug or move it to nfs-user-server.
