:Im looking for an answer to a problem i am having. My computer mounts an
:NFS share at boot time via /etc/fstab. If the server is for some reason
:unavailable at boot time of my computer, my computer just hangs on trying
:to mount the share. they were some kind of RPC errors. The problem is
:solved quickly by pressing ctrl+c, but i dont want to press ctrl+c. I'd
:like it to finish booting the system and dont hang forever on nfs.
:What can I do?
I usually tell NFS to do a background mount by specifying the 'bg'
option. Making operations interruptable with the 'intr' option is
also a good idea in certain cases. For example:
fubar:/usr/doc /usr/doc nfs ro,bg,intr 0 0
fubar:/sources/HEAD /usr/src nfs ro,bg,intr 0 0
