Details

When starting the netfs "daemon", you can see errors like this when /bin/sh is linked to something other than bash:

$ sudo /etc/rc.d/netfs restart
:: Unmounting Network Filesystems [DONE]
:: Mounting Network Filesystems [BUSY]
/bin/sh: Illegal option -p
mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking.
mount.nfs: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local, or start statd.
[FAIL]


This is due to the /usr/sbin/start-statd program having the opening line "#!/bin/sh -p", and -p is not a valid POSIX option.

Do you guys know where to contact upstream and/or leave a bug report? The mailing list on sourceforge seems awfully full of spam. Anyway, as we patch this file in Arch to use conf.d, I've attached a working start-statd script that is fully sh-compatible.
This task depends upon

In the patch for Arch Linux [#1] the -p is not present. Seems that is based in another version.

I know, the -p is in the upstream version, thus the reason I really want to talk to upstream but couldn't find the relevant place to do so.

Dan isn't this fixed in latest nfs-utils package? there is no /bin/sh -p at the start line of start-statd

Am I missing something then?

$ head -n1 /usr/sbin/start-statd
#!/bin/sh -p

ups, sorry was just looking at tom's startd patch there is no -p, shall i patch it out?

That would be great. I reported another bug to them upstream the other day after I found the ML, I wonder if I should report this one too...
