5 After losing my little server I decided to recommission another box I had
6 handy. It's a four-core, 64-bit Celeron box, so it's a lot more powerful than
7 the Atom. Then I tested using that as NFS host and this box as NFS client.
9 I tried removing all references to IPv6 under /etc on both machines, but still
10 got "No such file or directory." So I recompiled both kernels without IPv6,
11 shut down the DSL router and checked that no IPv6 addresses were present on
12 the two-machine LAN. I still got the same error.
14 Ergo, IPv6 is a red herring, and I'm left with some misconfiguration of NFS
15 between the two machines. Everything is now as I wrote the first time, except
16 for IPv6 addresses which are all commented out pro tem.
