I have a general question about installing updates and wanted to get some advice from experts. First: I have NFS Locking failures on shutdown. Is this a bid deal? Should I even worry about it? Second: I have read and googled a lot about this problem and it seems that it is supposed to be fixed with nfs-utils-1.0.7-16. I have already updated my machine via yum update and apt-get update . When I do a yum search, I get: Code: [[email protected][email protected] It appears that I only have 1.0.7-11 installed. How can I find out if this is the latest released version? If it is, should I try to install an unreleased 1.0.7-16 to fix my problem, or am I just asking for more headaches? Finally: Can I just turn off NFS locking using a chkconfig command? What will happen if I just decide to not use NFS Locking? Thanks!
