Connect to NFS on Linux
Authored by: jason8 on Dec 05, '03 08:48:38PM

This happened to me too. It's because my UID on Linux doesn't match my UID on OS X. To get around this, I exported it like this on the Linux machine:

/home/jason powerbook(ro,insecure,all_squash,anonuid=500)

Where 500 is my UID on the Linux machine. After this I mounted it on the PowerBook via:

mount -r -t nfs linux:/home/jason ./linux-home

Then everything worked fine. There's probably a way to do this from the "Connect to Server" window too, but I haven't figured it out.

Thank you very much, your suggestion worked perfectly for me too. Setting the UID is the trick.
