Re: [K12OSN] NFS Mount /home....Users Menus missing



Here's a guess out of left field: can your terminal server resolve the name & address of the server providing /home? And vice-versa: can the /home server resolve the name & address of the terminal server? Do they both have themselves and the other in their respective /etc/hosts file? I've run into strange problems with NFS from time to time that turned out to be DNS/name resolution related.

Just for laughs, have you tried selecting IceWM or KDE at login to see if they behave differently?


I don't know if it helps but I found this list of messages in /var/log/messages:
