    NFS died


    I'm using the knoppix 5.01 hdinstall, and trying to use nfs.

    nfs-common is 1.0.8-7
    nfs-user-server 2.2beta47-22

    I couldn't use nfs-kernel-server 1.0.8-7 because trying to install it led to:
    Code:
    Setting up nfs-kernel-server (1.0.8-7) ...
    Installing new version of config file /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server ...
    Exporting directories for NFS kernel daemon...exportfs: No host name given with /Music (ro), suggest *(ro) to avoid warning
    done.
    Starting NFS kernel daemon: nfsdinvoke-rc.d: initscript nfs-kernel-server, action "start" failed.
    dpkg: error processing nfs-kernel-server (--configure):
     subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     nfs-kernel-server
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    A package failed to install.  Trying to recover:
    Setting up nfs-kernel-server (1.0.8-7) ...
    Exporting directories for NFS kernel daemon...exportfs: No host name given with /Music (ro), suggest *(ro) to avoid warning
    done.
    Starting NFS kernel daemon: nfsdinvoke-rc.d: initscript nfs-kernel-server, action "start" failed.
    dpkg: error processing nfs-kernel-server (--configure):
     subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     nfs-kernel-server
    starting the nfs-user-server causes:

    Code:
    Starting NFS servers:Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
    What gives? I've even tried using the maintainer's /etc/export thinking it was some issue with the single entry in mine. No luck.

    I think this is the key to the problem:
    Code:
    No host name given with /Music (ro), suggest *(ro) to avoid warning
    The format of the /etc/exports file is very particular. You have to either itemize every host that is allowed to connect, or use a suitable range. The error message itself is suggesting that the line with /Music use an asterisk like this:
    Code:
    /Music  *(ro)
