Hello there!

I wanted to post the ticket about portmap too. I'm working now on diskless system using LFS.

What I have noticed.

1) Current portmap bootscript from blfs has incorrect restart section: it doesn't include calls to pmap_dump and pmap_set which are needed to reload currently working mappings. This problem is gone with portmap version 6 where portmap dumps mappings automatically to /var/run/portmap_mapping.

2) I changed the order of loading bootscripts (to be able to mount /usr hierarchy from the server) and noticed that portmap depends on libwrap.so which is located in /usr/lib and /usr cannot be mounted before portmap is started. So I suggest to extend installation of tcp_wrappers with commands (after make install):

mv -v /usr/lib/libwrap.so /lib &&
ln -sv /lib/libwrap.so /usr/lib

Thanks for attention.

P.S. By the way nfs-utils should be updated too.

P.P.S. I forgot my password for login spinal and I can't reset it. My email is not delivered to jhuntwork as it was recognized as spam. How can I restore my account?

Replying to spinal84:

... 1) Current portmap bootscript from blfs has incorrect restart section: it doesn't include calls to pmap_dump and pmap_set which are needed to reload currently working mappings. This problem is gone with portmap version 6 where portmap dumps mappings automatically to /var/run/portmap_mapping.

So it's fixed now by using the new version.

2) I changed the order of loading bootscripts (to be able to mount /usr hierarchy from the server) and noticed that portmap depends on libwrap.so which is located in /usr/lib and /usr cannot be mounted before portmap is started. So I suggest to extend installation of tcp_wrappers with commands (after make install):

mv -v /usr/lib/libwrap.so /lib &&
ln -sv /lib/libwrap.so /usr/lib

I'll open a new ticket for this issue since it is not directly a problem of portmap but more of the tcp_wrappers package.

P.S. By the way nfs-utils should be updated too.

We did.
