nfs-kernel-server failure on 5.4.43-sunxi64


Recommended Posts


update works on 5.4.28-sunxi64, so for sure kernel issue...


I fail to start the nfs-kernel-server on my neo2:

● nfs-server.service - NFS server and services
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/nfs-server.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Fri 2020-06-19 22:50:35 CEST; 57s ago
 Main PID: 28168 (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

and from dmesg:

I will try to downgrade kernel and see if this solves the issue
