[mythtv-users] NFS Kernel problem

Ah, corrupted library. Well, that's more realistic than a corrupted kernel (wouldn't boot!).
Unfortunately, without knowing WHICH library is corrupted I'm afraid I can't guide you in the right direction. Presuming you're running an RPM-based dist, then the fix should be just to re-download the installed version of the library and force a reinstall through RPM. Should fix your problem.

	Your thoughts are appreciated.  I didn't get much
	sleep last night because of the storm that went
	through (lots of wind) and my daughters were
	both scared.  Anyway, the myth box boots
	up and all core services (dns. dhcp, squid, procmail)
	work fine.  When I try to do a modprobe nfs,
	I get some error about not being able to load
	one of the .so files because it is corrupt or
	non-existent.  I'm at work, and didn't
	think in my sleepy stupor this morning to
	write down the exact problem.  So, I think
	you're right that nfs is not "in" the kernel,
	but I can't modprobe it either.
	Maybe doing an apt-get update or something
	similar would help?
