Enable NFS for LS-VL
Do I need to install a new kernel?
No you don't.
At least with firmware 1.36, Buffalo already built the kernel with NFSD support enabled.
What is missing?
The "only" missing stuff are the nfs_utils.
Unfortunately the optware feed for the LS-VL does not contain the complete nfs_utils due to build problems.
Serendipitously (I always wanted to use this word ;-) ) I built the necessary tools and scripts when I built the Ready-to-use NFS kernel.Do not use this kernel for the LS-VL!
You DO need the package "portmap" (and maybe also "e2fslibs") from Optware installed!
What do you have to do?
Download this tarball to the share "share":
Then connect as user "root" to your LS-VL via ssh. Change to the root directory.
Unpack the tarball.
tar xvzf /mnt/disk1/share/nfstools.tar.gz
Either reboot the box or just start the nfsd.
Wait at least one minute before you check for success.
It should return this:
portmap is running. mountd is running. nfsd is running. statd is running. lockd is running. All kernel NFS services running.
