this should help (FC6 - FC7 should be similar)

I'm running kernel .

Both the /usr/sbin/rpc.nfsd and /usr/sbin/rpc.mountd files are present.
The /etc/init.d/mount and /etc/init.d/portmap are missing.

I went to the KMenu->System->Firewall and SELinux and made sure that NFS4
was check and restarted the nfs service.

Nothing for portmap.
   # service portmap start
   portmap: unrecognized service
   # ps -ef | grep portmap
   root      5577  3316  0 13:23 pts/8    00:00:00 grep portmap

rpm says portmap is not present.
    # rpm -q --whatprovides /etc/init.d/portmap
    error: file /etc/init.d/portmap: No such file or directory

No rpc service running.
   # rpcinfo -p localhost
   rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC: Unknown host

# service rpcbind status
   rpcbind (pid 5172) is running...

Yum finds nothing.
# yum provides portmap

Yum does not find anything to install.
# yum install portmap
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Nothing to do

Find yields no output.
# find / -name "*portmap*"

So, clearly portmap is not installed. I'm tying to understand where I went wrong with
the install in order for this to happen. And also how do you add the NFS capability if
it were missing given that Pirut and Yumex show nothing regarding portmap?
