Trying to mount a partition from a USB drive via USB.
It's mounted, and says that it's rw
user at local$ mount
192.168.1.1:/tmp/mnt/disc0_3 on /media type nfs
but when I
user at local$ touch /media/touch2.txt I get
touch: cannot touch `/media/touch2.txt': Read-only file system
I even chmod'ed 777 on the remote system
user at remote$ ls -al /tmp/mnt/disc0_3/
drwxrwxrwx 3 admin root 4096 Dec 12 14:11 .
and the mount point on the local system
user at local$ ls -al /media
drwxrwxrwx 3 root root 4096 2008-12-12 18:45 .
I've tried with root, but expect that root_squash is blocking that.
I've also tried with a non-privileged user with the same name and uid on
The players in this case are
remote: ASUS WL-500g Premium
usb drive: WD 500GB
local: ubuntu hardy
So what's up with that? Tips for nfs happiness?
