I'm trying to read/write files to my "Private" folder from two different Linux computers using NFS.
The first is an XO Laptop (OLPC) which is basically running a version of Fedora. The other is a Compaq Presario on which I've installed Ubuntu 9.04.
Now I've setup everything more or less using the instructions on the page...
and to solve the earlier problem that I had with IP Addresses...
I setup my router with DD-WRT and used its Static DHCP feature to assign IP addresses based on the specific devices MAC Address.
Now with all that, I can access most of the files in my /HOME/username folders from both machines, but I can't get to the files/folders inside the "Private" directory while logged in as a standard user.
With the XO, I can use the ....
- Code: Select all
...command to get root access and then I can see contents of "Private". It's a bit cumbersome and works as compromise. The problem is that I can't use the same solution with Ubuntu. Ubuntu doesn't allow use of the SU command.
I'm wondering if there is a variation of the settings in the EXPORTS file on the bubba or in the FSTAB file (or MOUNT command) on my client computers that I can use to get me access.
Does anyone have any ideas?
