I really don't write something like this very often, so please forgive me
if I may appear a bit rude if I do it now?

Would you please read the manual pages of the services that you run (or do
not run)?

I suspect that you have blackholed (firewall-wise) or disabled
the portmapper so that some rpc service, most likely an nfs server, does
not start up. If you have read the manual pages you'd know what the
problem is about.

Again, this is not security related. Please stop your off-topic emails on
suse-security.

Period.

Roman.
