NFS How To

---Submitted by linuxosa --

Now I am able to mount an NFS fold from Android-x86 running as a KVM guest (VNC as display). The steps I did:

1. Using eeepc-20090820.iso and install it;
2. Boot to debug mode;
3. modprobe sunrpc lockd nfs;
4. netcfg eth0 dhcp;
5. mount -t nfs -o nolock /sdcard, must use the busybox
mount here, toolbox mount doesn't work in my case, always report "Invalid argument".
I don't know why.
6. then exit the shell so you enter android;
7. Alt+F1 to enter shell again;
8. again: netcfg eth0 dhcp;
9. setprop net.dns1 your-dns-server;
10. route add default gw your-default-gw;

At this point, I am able to browser internet and use OI file manager to access the files in the nfs shared folder.

The virsh xml file for the VM:

<domain type='kvm'>
<type arch='i686' machine='pc'>hvm</type>
<boot dev='hd'/>
<boot dev='cdrom'/>
<clock offset='localtime'/>
