I've got two netbooks. One netbook has two installed Linux systems: openSUSE 11.04 and Debian testing. By default, in Debian, gnome mounts the
/home filesystem for openSUSE, which shows up in gnome's 'places,' in
with read only permissions for users.
When I share /media via NFS, I can't access anything.
me@ROOROO:~/$ cd /mnt/network2/f9309491-1893-47da-b473-021fa2989fcf/ bash: cd: /mnt/network2/f9309491-1893-47da-b473-021fa2989fcf/: Permission denied
Obviously the best idea here is to mount and share the partition (
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/foldername) directly by exporting
/etc/exports, without using gnome.
But I want to know why I couldn't just export
/media in the first place, because I like knowing how stuff works.
