SailfishX missing NFS support?

Purchased SailfishX and to my big suprise, mounting NFS shares isn't possible anymore. Can't be true, jolla removed NFS support from the kernel, can be?

Nobody wan'ts to read the following lines I guess, but it's my experience with the Xperia X and Sailfish X: 3 years Sailsfish evolution - still no SIP account/nativVoIP support, no emojies+arrow keyboard, no light theme, and a completely messed up auto-focus camera app. How much patience does Joll expect from users? When I unboxed the Xperia X and first and played with it's Oero, the impression was like wow, nice gadget. After installing Sailfish, the expirience is dull and dreary, no "wow" at all anymore - the cost of privace. Seems a bit too high these days. And regressions like missing NFS support is a absolute show stoper. Either I'm missing anything or this device wil get any Lineage CM or the like :-( Also interactive response is disappointing. My JP1 feels smoother than the much more powerful Xperia X - even the browser "feels" slower - no benchmarking done at all, so please consider this as a "feeling" - but why that feeling? Most likely measurings would show a similar picture - not what I expect afer 3 years of evolution.

Update: Questions to JP1-2.1.4.* users: Can anybody confirm that this is a problem with SailfishX only, not with SailfishOX >2.0.?.* (which is what I still run)?

Thanks in advance.

P.S.: I'm a bit surprised that my initial question was censored. To much truth? Of course, it's out of scope of that single problem which my question referes to, but I don't have a _single_ problem with SailfishX...

SailfishX missing NFS support?

Hossa still lacks NFS[3|4] support :-(

As far as I understand, Sony provides all the code & tools to compile (and replace) a custom kernel which can be used for Sailfish X (Hossa). Unfortunately, I'm the BSD guy and don't have Linux/SDK running and no time to setup/read through.

If somebody contributes a public solution, I'll pay US$/€50-100. Serious – quick money if you're having the environment handy. But reproduction steps must be posted, especially if it's still true that we can't load it as kernel module (thus, need to replace the whole kernel :-(

Blame on Jolla. Such a big regression completely ignored. This is one of the major issues why I still can't use my Xperia X and still need to hope my Jolla 1 will keep alive...
