no-root user can not mount a remote nfs directory?


hi all,
When I use the "mount -t nfs" command to mount a exported nfs
directory , I got the message "mount: only root can do that". Does it
mean no-root users can not use nfs?

regards

That appears to be what it means. You can type in su, hit enter, then type in the root password and mount it. I think you can edit the fstab file so that users can mount that too. I think you add "users" to the options. Example:

Code:
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0	/mnt/cdrom		iso9660		noauto,ro,users		0 0
I think that works. Don't kill me if it don't though.

Later

Right now, I'm to cold to die. It is freezing down here. Who took me to Minot North Dekota???? I'm pissed!!!

Glad it worked though. I thought that was right but I'm the only one that uses this thing so I have the root password.
