Yep, got nfs-common. As I understand it, I wouldn't be able to share on NFS if I didn't have it :D
Anyone got any ideas how to do nfslocking so that I can mount NFS shares? I'm so close that it's frustrating! Link: http://www.thursby.com/support/faq.lasso?id=196Kernels 2.4 and later don't need a specific lockd daemon they start a kernel thread - or so the nfs-common start-up script claims on Debian Sarge (/etc/init.d/nfs-common).
Running Sid, but the script would appear to be the same.
If you have a bespoke kernel this might be a problem, otherwise I suspect your problem is something else.

To see what RPC services are registered. I think nlockmgr is what you need to see, if that is there it is not this problem I suspect.
As you can see, no nlockmgr.
The Debian box is probably working fine, it is pretty easy to set up NFS on GNU/Linux. Try using "showmount" to check the exports are correct. Also use the rpcinfo command to see if there are firewall issues or similar.

I am pretty certain that there's no firewalling issues - both machines are on the same Green network, both within the same subnet, the IP addresses are statically assigned by DHCP, and when the Mac boots into Debian I can successfully mount the remote share in question as RW. I am beginning to think that the issue is not with my NFS setup. Cheers.
