Hi all -
Regarding the "invalid argument" problem on Mandrake and SuSE boxes, I
think I've found the problem.
Mandrake applies a patch from Neil Brown that adds an "nfsd_operations"
interface between knfsd and each filesystem. I can't find a kernel
source RPM for SuSE 7.1, but I assume that it's the same issue.
If this interface doesn't exist for a filesystem (and at this point, it
does not for XFS), this patched version of nfs deems the filesystem
"invalid" and will not export it.
I think it's pretty quick fix, I'll be looking into it today.
