NFS 4.1 support in Kirkwood kernel?

NFS 4.1 support in Kirkwood kernel?
April 13, 2013 12:09PM

I'm trying to set up a NFS server on my Pogoplug v2 and can't get NFS 4.1 to work (which I need for Windows compatibility). From what I gather, NFS 4.1 should be supported by Debian wheezy, but on my Pogoplug it looks like it isn't:
cat /proc/fs/nfsd/versions
+2 +3 +4 -4.1

Is this a problem with the Kirkwood kernel or should I start asking around in "general" Debian forums?

Are you running squeeze or wheezy? what is your output of

uname -a
apt-cache show nfs-common

Looking here http://client.linux-nfs.org/wiki/index.php/NFSv41_Introduction it states that at least 1.2.0 of nfs-utils is required, so I should have a NFS 4.1 supporting version with the installed 1.2.6. I looked through the build-log here https://buildd.debian.org/status/logs.php?pkg=nfs-utils&ver=1%3A1.2.6-3&arch=armel and it seems to be built with --enable-nfsv41
