Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-0297

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : nfs-utils
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 1.1.2
Release     : 9.fc9
URL         : http://sourceforge.net/projects/nfs
Summary     : NFS utilities and supporting clients and daemons for the kernel NFS server
Description :
The nfs-utils package provides a daemon for the kernel NFS server and
related tools, which provides a much higher level of performance than the
traditional Linux NFS server used by most users.

This package also contains the showmount program.  Showmount queries the
mount daemon on a remote host for information about the NFS (Network File
System) server on the remote host.  For example, showmount can display the
clients which are mounted on that host.

This package also contains the mount.nfs and umount.nfs program.

- Added warnings to tcp wrapper code when mounts are    denied due to
misconfigured DNS configurations.  - gssd: By default, don't spam syslog when
