NFS Shares not auto-mounting through fstab when using wicd
While many of you love to hate network-manager, and recommend wicd in it's place, I have discovered a problem with wicd and auto-mounting nfs files from my fstab.
This is not the case when using network-manager.
This occurred after swapping out network-manager with wicd (latest versions). After a while I decided to restore network-manager and remove wicd to see if that would make a difference, and to my surprise, it did! Using network-manager (again), my nfs mounts reappeared automatically after booting.
I would prefer to use wicd on my laptop for roaming purposes, and while it is a minor nuisance to after connecting to my home network, I would prefer the nfs mounts to come up automatically as they do in network-manager.
Any ideas as to why this happens?
here are my fstab/nfs entries:
I have seen other reports of this (and smb shares defined in fstab), but no adequate explanations/fixes as far as wicd is concerned.
