Do you get these messages when you are acting as root? In that case
it sounds like you haven't exported with root permissions. Sorry, but I
don't understand the linux export syntax, you have to check the manual
page for that.
Good luck with IPv6 anyway; I haven't played with it myself but there
are people running INRIA's IPv6 under NetBSD on a research department
here, and have been doing so for about a year. It works real fine for them.
