I am having some difficulty getting NFS to work on my Core 7
( box, wondering if I have missed something obvious. I
have edited the /etc/exports file, and when I attempt to restart the nfs
demon I get the following:

[root scully etc]# vi exports
[root scully etc]# service nfs reload
[root scully etc]# service nfs status
rpc.mountd is stopped
nfsd is stopped
rpc.rquotad is stopped
[root scully etc]# service nfs start
Starting NFS services:                                     [  OK  ]
Starting NFS quotas: Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive;
errno = Connection refused
rpc.rquotad: unable to register (RQUOTAPROG, RQUOTAVERS, udp).
Starting NFS daemon:

at which point it hangs and I have to kill the command from a new shell.

I have seen conflicting references online regarding this error, stating
that portmap must be started first, and also that portmap is deprecated in
fc7. What else should I look at?

You need to make sure rpcbind is running.

service rpcbind start

before you start nfs services.!
