    nfs share mounting in osx questions
    not sure if this is the place for this topic but figured id try here first . i have a nfs share server which is linux ( the client is the power mac osx (

    im fairly familar with linux and its command prompt ive only used the mac a few time since its my moms. im trying to see if it can even see the nfs server useing the showmount -e command and this is what happening

    sudo showmount -e it gave an rpc authentication failure.
    so than after i got that error i thought id see if rpc daemons were running useing

    rpcinfo -p
    rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC: Remote system error - Connection refused
    i have no idea about anything on mac's but im guessing the daemons are not started. but how do i even find out if they exsist on the computer and if they dont is their any kind of packmanager for mac such as yum for redhat, portage for gentoo etc...?

    that should get it mounted at login.

    mount should work, as long as you know what your mountpoints are.
