Try adding a line like:


to your /etc/rc.conf file.


Hi Martin,

thanks for that... I already had that line hence the link I gave.

First up I want to talk about my Perl issues. I managed to sort that out :-)

First up: make deinstall (it was claimed as installed but didn't do properly)

Then as you suggested:

make test
make install
make clean

That worked really well :-)

For NFS this is funny but a common mistake:

Using rpcinfo -s we get:

   program version(s) netid(s)                         service owner
    100000  2,3,4     local,udp6,tcp6,udp,tcp          portmapper superuser
    100003  3,2       tcp6,tcp                         nfs superuser
    100005  3,1       tcp,udp,tcp6,udp6                mountd superuser

rpcinfo -p we get:

   program vers proto   port  service
    100000    4   tcp    111  portmapper
    100000    3   tcp    111  portmapper
    100000    2   tcp    111  portmapper
    100000    4   udp    111  portmapper
    100000    3   udp    111  portmapper
    100000    2   udp    111  portmapper
    100000    4     7    111  portmapper
    100000    3     7    111  portmapper
    100000    2     7    111  portmapper
    100003    2   tcp   2049  nfs
    100003    3   tcp   2049  nfs
    100005    1   udp    980  mountd
    100005    3   udp    980  mountd
    100005    1   tcp    980  mountd
    100005    3   tcp    980  mountd

showmount -e also shows all my 'exports' too.

Now reading more about nfs on NetBSD it turns out that by default it is using the 'old' method of udp rather then tcp which the later versions of NFS now default to.

So a line like this: mount_nfs -T <ip>:/<export> <mount> is the answer to getting things working.

For fstab one can simply add: <ip>:<export> <mount> nfs rw,tcp 0 0

I hope this also helps someone transitioning from other OS's to NetBSD.

Overall I must say that I'm impressed though it will take me a little while to learn and get used to it but it's really easy to do basic stuff fast as the amount of online documentation is pretty thorough.
