Thanks for going to the trouble of making suggestions about this
problem. It's good of you to spend time on it.

I doubt the NFS version is the issue: I've got four 10.04 systems
mounting these same NFS shares at startup perfectly correctly. And I'm
not trying to set up a server: just one 12.04 client; so the procedure
ought simply to be
create mount points in /media;
install rpcbind and nfs-common;
add the shares to fstab

Because portmap is deprecated now, my hosts.deny file simple has
rpcbind : ALL
and hosts.allow has
rpcbind : <numeric ReadyNAS IP address>
But the problem is not that I'm locked out of the shares: rather it's
that 'mount.nfs' appears to think that rpc.statd is not running (which
can't depend on what's in hosts.deny/allow, can it???).

Mine is unedited - so it's the vanilla statd as installed in /etc/init.d
on a new system.
Anyway, I've set the shares up with CIFS until a solution to this issue
appears. I hope this will happen magically, with the release of 12.04.1
and the silkily glitch-free automatic upgrade of my existing 10.04
systems to 12.04. ;-)
(I guess you must have had success with a routine upgrade from 10.04 or
11.10, given that you're still running portmap, for which apt-get now
I must say, I'm a bit surprised that no one else here has experienced
this problem with setting up NFS on 12.04 (and - because there are real
engineers here who know acres more than me - solved it).
Again, many thanks for your suggestions about this. Much appreciated!
