Name        : nfs-utils
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 1.2.4
Release     : 1.fc15
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.

    svcgssd: use correct defaults in call to gss_set_allowable_enctypes
    For the window of kernels between 2.6.35 (when the support
    for newer encryption was added) and 2.6.39 (when the ability
    to read the supported enctypes from the kernel was added),
    use a default of all enctypes when the kernel supported
    enctypes file cannot be read.
    For kernels before 2.6.35, continue to use a default of
    only DES enctypes.
    Note that the version of Kerberos must also support the use of
    gss_set_allowable_enctypes for service-side negotiations.
