NFS Client file access problem firefox
Last modified: 2010-11-18 23:11:54 UTC
After startup Firefox reports:
The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem.

Yes. This is a known problem. A fix has already been posted to the mailing
lists, and is currently queued up in my 'bugfixes' branch on git.linux-nfs.org.

NLM: Fix a regression in lockd
Apparently, removing the 'transport->srcaddr.ss_family = family' from
xs_create_sock() triggers this due to nlmclnt_lookup_host() incorrectly
initialising the srcaddr family to AF_UNSPEC.
Ok, the patch works for me too. I will close the bug when the fix appears in mainline.
Fixed by commit 8e35f8e7c61c88f9a979a4e6f7f4ffd4c158a88a .
