Has anyone else had trouble with NFS serving since upgrading to a recent 
kernel or compiler?

I just tried upgrading to vanilla-sources  All seemed well, until my 
diskless mythtv system started crashing.  It would appear to be an NFS 
problem.  NFS works fine for a while, but after 10 to 15 minutes it locks up.  
This may be a function of the amount of data transfered.  I also see problems 
when I mount NFS exports from the Alpha on my i386 SuSE 10.0 system.

Fearing a problem with the kernel version I tried to build a new version of 
the old kernel (, since I needed to add RAID.  Bizarely and 
worryingly, this gives the same error.  This suggests that something else has 
changed and the only thing I can think of is the compiler, which I have 
probably upgraded since I built the working kernel.

Has anyone got a reliable Alpha NFS server with a recently built kernel and if 
so which kernel and compiler versions did you use.

BTW, I have an LX164.
