btw: be carful on software installations using dietpi-software until a fix was provided. Because dietpi-software will update all apt packages in front of a software installation. Usually this include the kernel as well. Not sure if rpi-update will block this for the time being ;)

I'm having the same issues. I had a perfectly working OS on my microsd card, then a powercut happened (first one in 160 days) and I lost it. Stupid me for not keeping my backups safe.

All tutorials online suggest installing rcpbind and nfs-utils, and apparently neither of those now exist in the repo. I'm at my wits end. The videos play and stream across the network but they're so blocky and unwatchable. It used to be perfect.

For anyone else experiencing same issues, this worked for me:

Install rpi-update if you don't have it installed:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install rpi-update
Revert to kernel 5.10.10:

Code: Select all

sudo rpi-update 8c2ba64b27a4b6a1dfcd114203c6309f766e2ef4
Reboot to apply the changes:

Code: Select all

sudo reboot
Okay this solution worked perfectly I've got my NFS server back!

Written it down for future use. I'm so glad this wasn't one of those threads where it said, solved it guys. Last seen 8 years ago.

Yes it's a Raspberry OS kernel issue, that hopefully will be fixed soon by Raspberry Foundation

Wow! Thanks guys!

My kodi playback just ground to a halt suddenly after installing Plex on my RP4b NAS running DietPi.
Had no idea that DietPi's method of installation updates everything!!!

I managed to fix issue by reverting to SMB shares, so Kodi playback works.

Thanks for the info regarding how to downgrade, saving this for future use👍

Yes, actually this the behaviour of DietPi to perform an apt update && apt upgrade infront of a software installation. This will change within upcoming version 6.35
