    Enabling NFS client support on my target board


    Hi Everyone,

    I have just joined this forum but after going through the forum, I guess i will be a regular visitor.

    I would like to enable NFS(Network file system) Support in my board.

    To give you a brief about NFS. NFS or network file system is used to mount filesystems of any linux machine on the target board. After the linux machine is mounted used NFS, the target can access and execute the files from the machine. Mounting the machine reduces frequent uploading of images on the target.

    My board uses the Monta Vista linux 2.4.17 kernel.

    Currently I have enabled the following options in the .config (kernal configuration file)
    CONFIG_NFS_CLIENT=y

    CONFIG_NFS_FS=y
    CONFIG_NFS_V3=y
    CONFIG_SUNRPC=y
    CONFIG_LOCKD=y

    CONFIG_MOUNT=y
    CONFIG_UMOUNT=y
    CONFIG_NFSMOUNT=y
    CONFIG_MOUNT_FORCE=y

    But Iam not able get the NFS support working. Can anyone help me on this?

    Thanks in Advance.

    Queenie

    Is the server enabled as an NFS server?

    What mount command you are launching on the target?
