Subject description: NFS not mounting in newer puppies
 

For many weeks I've been trying to find out why I could not mount my Readynas Duo using NFS in newer puppies.

previously in the 525/528 series of Puppy Linux I've been using the command
Code:
mount-FULL -t nfs -o nolock 192.16.16.200:/media /mnt/nas_media


This would not work in any of the newer puppies. I've now discovered that the command that works is
Code:
busybox mount -t nfs -o nolock 192.16.16.200:/media /mnt/nas_media


I've tested it with these puppies that are some of the ones currently on my desktop pc
squeeze-5_X_3_2_11-SCSI
precise-5_2_55
FATSlacko-5_3_3x-SCSI

What would the syntax look like if I need to suply username&password?
I now get: permission denied. Which is actually quit good, because it means a connection is trying to be made Laughing Slowly I'm progressing...

THANK YOU! Your solution works on saluki 023 too.
Unfortunately this post is too low on google's rank for people with NFS mount problems to notice. Lots of older posts I've tried lead nowhere, yours is a savior.

BTW, on saluki mount-FULL -t nfs fails because it can't find mount.nfs, which is indeed missing, and I can't find it in common repositories either. If anyone can point me to a package with that file I'll be grateful.
