Hi folks,

it seems that whenever I write to my Linux knfsd server from a Sun, the
lockd dies and becomes a zombie and all NFS accesses become "Stale NFS

Besides, symlinks are not represented as symlinks but as the file being
pointed to. This is rather awkward as it poses all kinds of unexpected
problems. Can I switch this off?

I'm using the 2.1.54+ SparcLinux kernel.


Dearest user, you shouldn't use such a complex thing.
Here, have Windows 95!
