rpcinfo -p produces

freebox:/home/drinky# rpcinfo -p
   program vers proto   port
    100000    2   tcp    111  portmapper
    100000    2   udp    111  portmapper
    100024    1   udp    978  status
    100024    1   tcp    981  status

which is obviously wrong as I need at least nfs,
portmapper and mountd running. Am I going to have to
get busy with run levels and startup scripts? Please
say no.

I noticed I was getting errors from nfs-kernel-server
after running apt-get dist-upgrade, so I did

freebox:/home/drinky# dpkg --configure
Setting up nfs-kernel-server (1.0.6-1) ...
Stopping NFS kernel daemon: mountd nfsd.
Unexporting directories for NFS kernel daemon...done.
Exporting directories for NFS kernel daemon...done.
Starting NFS kernel daemon: nfsdinvoke-rc.d:
initscript nfs-kernel-server, action "restart" failed.
dpkg: error processing nfs-kernel-server
 subprocess post-installation script returned error
exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:


Any suggestions welcome :)
