2010-08-17 16:00:33     question about BF526 EZBRD - mounting NFS drive

Message: 92521   

 

I have a BF526 EZBRD 1.1 PCB and am using the latest pre-compiled U-Boot and uClinux binaries from the website:

 

U-Boot = u-boot-bf526-ezbrd-spi-2009R1.1-rc1.ldr

 

uClinux = uImage-bf526-ezbrd-2009R1.1-RC4

 

I am able to run U-Boot without any issues and load the uClinux binary from a server via NFS without any issues.  Once uClinux command prompt is available I am able to ping this server without any issues.  However, if I try to mount this server via NFS via the command:

 

mount -t nfs SERVERIP:PATH /mnt (where SERVERIP and PATH are replaced with actual values)

 

I see the following errors:

 

RPC: Registered udp transport module.

RPC: Registered tcp transport module.

rpcbind: server localhost not responding, timed out

RPC: failed to contact local rpcbind server (errno 5).

rpcbind: server localhost not responding, timed out

RPC: failed to contact local rpcbind server (errno 5).

rpcbind: server localhost not responding, timed out

RPC: failed to contact local rpcbind server (errno 5).

rpcbind: server localhost not responding, timed out

RPC: failed to contact local rpcbind server (errno 5).

lockd_up: makesock failed, error=-5

 

Can someone confirm if the uClinux distribution binary for BF526 (uImage-bf526-ezbrd-2009R1.1-RC4) supports mounting drives via NFS?

 

Thanks,

 

Matt

After posting this question, I came across the following information about NFS:

 

  docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=uclinux-dist:nfs

 

and saw the note about running the portmap utility.

 

 

 

After entering the command:

 

portmap &

 

the mount command is now working beautifully.
