    RE: linux image 3.6.0 breaks my NFS
    Thanks for your response. My search of the web shows that the issue was brought up prior to the release of 3.6. Monday's release of 3.6.1 still does not deal with the issue. I tried this workaround[code]echo 0 > /proc/sys/fs/protected_symlinks[/code]found [url=http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/1367467]here[/url]. This method is ineffectual because /proc/sys/fs/protected_symlinks is re-written with the value 1 on every boot. The change must be made in the kernel itself. [url=http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/1367467]Linus is aware of this issue[/url] and recommends a fix. Perhaps the fix is in the works and will come out soon. Until then, I will continue to use 3.5.2.

    linux image 3.6.0 breaks my NFS
    I have been running linux-image 3.5.2 on debian sid since the release of 3.5.2. I have not had any issues with nfs. Today I installed 3.6.0 and my nfs does not work. The server location is mounted in the client /etc/fstab but file manager does not see the symlinks. What has changed in the way the kernel handles nfs in 3.6? Edit: This may be the same issue with symlinks as mentioned [url=http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/1367467]here[/url] Edit 2: nfs symlinks in /etc/fstab: [code]192.168.1.100:/home/jheaton5 /home/jheaton5/chico nfs rw,hard,intr,sync 0 0 192.168.1.100:/home/jheaton5/chico /home/jheaton5/chico/chico nfs rw,hard,intr,sync 0 0[/code]

    Edit 2:
    nfs symlinks in /etc/fstab:

    192.168.1.100:/home/jheaton5    /home/jheaton5/chico      nfs    rw,hard,intr,sync    0    0
