I'm having problems that I didn't expect with a fresh, new 10.3 installation. (I had enough trouble with 11.0 b3 that I reformatted my drive and reinstalled 10.3, then fully updated it.)
I can't map any of the NFS drives served by my domain controller. I can see those shares from another machine, so I think the sharing is set up okay. The nfs client configuration here tries to restart the services, but always hangs, and does nothing at all for as long as I care to wait. (I've waited up to 20 minutes.)

The shares show up in Konqueror, but trying to access them results in the message, "Feature only available with HAL." According to YaST, HAL is installed. System Services tells me that nfs client is installed, but not enabled. Enabling it results in a similar wait with a little window that simply says "nfs start", then a message that says "nfs start returned nil".

I'd really like to use this laptop to view some racing videos I downloaded to a share on the server, and nfs seems like the best way to do that.

Any ideas?
