Archived from groups: linux>debian>bugs>dist, others (more info?)

Package: nfs-common
Version: 1:1.2.2-4
Severity: important

Symptom:

The nfs-common failed to be installed properly:

$ sudo apt-get install nfs-common
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following NEW packages will be installed:
nfs-common
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

After this operation, 676 kB of additional disk space will be used.

Creating config file /etc/idmapd.conf with new version

Creating config file /etc/default/nfs-common with new version
Starting NFS common utilities: statd failed!
invoke-rc.d: initscript nfs-common, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing nfs-common (--configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
configured to not write apport reports
Errors were encountered while processing:
nfs-common

Launching it manually get the same error as well:

% invoke-rc.d nfs-common start
Starting NFS common utilities: statd failed!
invoke-rc.d: initscript nfs-common, action "start" failed.

The whole execution log of

sudo bash -x /etc/init.d/nfs-common start

is posted at http://pastebin.com/SQefWNQs

On the surface, the reason of failure is the failure of

statd+ start-stop-daemon --start --oknodo --quiet --exec /sbin/rpc.statd
--
+ RET=1

The symptom is confirmed as well by Dr. Ed Morbius, Chief Scientist,
Krell Power Systems Unlimited. See
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.debian.user/399917

The real reason is that the post install process of nfs-common
didn't deal with portmap:

$ grep portmap /etc/runlevel.conf || echo not found
not found

I.e., the portmap is not enabled by default as the daemon.

Starting it manually solve the problem:

% rpcinfo -p
rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC: Remote system error - Connection refused

% /etc/init.d/portmap start
Starting portmap daemon....

% rpcinfo -p
program vers proto port
100000 2 tcp 111 portmapper
100000 2 udp 111 portmapper

% /etc/init.d/nfs-common start
Starting NFS common utilities: statd.
