Description Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-26 23:34:51 UTC
Linuxconf always wants to restart NFS. This is a bug in
/etc/rc.d/init.d/nfs as this sysv script is of type "probe".

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-03-29 16:46:59 UTC
as of knfsd-1.2-3, when nfs is stopped, /etc/rc.d/init.d/nfs probe
will correctly return 'start' not 'restart'. Do you mean you never get
the 'reload' to be returned?

Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-29 16:56:59 UTC
Does "/etc/rc.d/init.d/nfs probe" print nothing (not "nothing",
rather literally nothing at all) and return success when nothing
needs to be done because the configuration is up to date?

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-29 17:01:59 UTC
Yes, even when nothing needs to be done, the probe command always
prints "restart"

Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-29 17:13:59 UTC
Fixed in knfsd-1.2-5
