    Hello,

    I had to attach my disks (BTRFS RAID1) directly to the cubox-i4.
    I would like to ask if there is also an NFS Server available too? Unfortunately I have not found the usual files needed on the system or package.

    Thanks in advance for an answer.

    Best regards, grisu

    As far as i can see, we don’t have an ‘nfsd’ package and NFS server support is disabled in iMX6 kernel config. I’m not so familiar with this stuff. Maybe @tomlohave knows more…

    Hi all,
    We only support the client side. No server. And it’s the first request for this.

    The latest Geexbox build for Cubox-i does contain the nfsd kernel module. But I have no idea what it takes to enable full nfsd support.

    Thank you very much for your efforts!
    I will give it a try.

    I have done the update.

    It seems that a package “nfs-kernel-server” would be needed to interact with the nfsd kernel module.
    This package includes some required programs like exportfs, rpc.mountd and rpc.nfsd, config files and the start/stop scripts for systemd. The package itself is usual small but has some dependencies.

    AFAICS, the needed userland daemons (rpc.statd, rpc.nfsd, rpc.mountd and exportfs) are in the ‘nfs-utils’ package. But I don’t know if the rather old version of this package that we currently provide (1.3.0) will work.

    Hmm, i tried this package already. In the current nfs-utils_1.3.0-2_armv7.opk is only the following: mount.nfs, mount.nfs4, umount.nfs, umount.nfs4 and osd_login.

    On my ubuntu PC the nfs-kernel-server is still 1.2.8, the client is on 1.3.0-2. So far no issues with that versions.
