I have a somewhat strange setup going on here, I have Android as the client and it's kernel does not support NFSv4, also my /etc/exports file on the server side has no NFSv4 style entries.
I am trying to build some toolchains (I have gcc-4.8-armhf and all that on my phone as well as apt-get with repositories set up so I can install stuff if needed) as well as following LFS, but I can't build some programs such as perl due to not being able set file ownership and what not.
My /etc/exports (server) :
ls -l looks like this (client):
drwxr-xr-x 6 4294967294 4294967294 4096 Jun 21 17:23 toolchains -rw-r--r-- 1 4294967294 4294967294 0 Jun 25 18:51 rootu
sudo chown root:root looks like this (client) (rootu is just a test file):
sudo chown root:root rootu chown: changing ownership of `rootu': Invalid argument
My mount command (client) :
sudo mount -t nfs 192.168.1.210:/media/usb3/Android /home/edge-case/Android-Lab/ -o tcp
I've gone over the man pages and read some tutorials and other questions but they all say to just set no_root_squash, which I did from the start, and that doesn't work.
I don't have LDAP or Kerberos, or any sophisticated authentication set up at the moment, that is all beyond my skill ( and 0 pay ) level at the moment. I'm at home so I have complete root access and ownership of everything and not too worried about security other than maybe war-drivers, but I do have a good wireless password, so no tin foil hat really needed for me ;P
I used to have this working, but it seems some changes to Debian have been made and things are not working so well anymore. Are Windows agents screwing up Linux source!? J/k
Really what is this? Where can I find a simple way to mount a directory with files owned by me, or root (via sudo chown) if I choose, and not some strange "4294967294" user that doesn't exist on the client or server?
