My test boxes have an issue mounting the first NFS mount in the
fstab on boot, but they just print a warning and background the
mount, then try again a few seconds later and get it.
This is what I usually have:
crater:/cvs /cvs nfs ro,bg 0 0
Maybe there is a bug when one is not doing a 'bg' mount. There are
several things that happen during startup that can cause initial NFS
mounts to fail:
* The ethernet may take longer to come up then expected. This is
especially true of 'em' ethernet devices. The system winds up
trying to run the first NFS mount before the ethernet has come
* For the same reason DNS may take longer to come up then expected.
This theoretically is not supposed to cause the NFS mount to fail,
though, just take longer.
You should be getting some sort of error line printed on the console
during startup for the NFS mount(s) that failed. Look carefully for
