Devuan mounting remote NFS shares in /etc/fstab BEFORE network is up?

I am running Devuan ASCII, so I am not sure if this is applicable to Beowulf, however I have several local-network NFS mounts in /etc/fstab. While booting, Devuan launches rpcbind and other NFS-related daemons and then apparently tries to mount these filesystems unsucessfully and causing the boot to hang for several minutes, as it would seem the interface configuration from /etc/network/interfaces has not yet come up.

Anyone know why this is? I am unable to pull up the messages and errors because they were displayed during the init run-up at boot, and are apparently no where to be found in /var/log.

Thanks

You should probably post /etc/fstab and /etc/network/interfaces.

I don't use NFS myself but I would check https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NF … /etc/fstab — the _netdev option looks relevant for this problem.

An alternative to solving the problem would be to set up autofs for the nfs mounts. Then they'll mount automatically when you use them.
