knfsd won't support map_static, where can I get me a real network filesystem?
Sigh! Reading the mailling list it seems knfsd doesn't and won't ever support map_static.
ie. There is no way of taking two boxen with established and conflicting uid/gid and doing a sane NFS mount via knfsd.
So I tried userspace nfs, it does support map_static, but on Ubuntu Hardy Heron, calls to utimes (eg. touch foo;touch foo) fail with EINVAL.
The knfsd mailling list suggested, God Forbid, samba. Samba for communicating between linux boxen!
Samba config is so flexible, so do everything, it gives me a sharp pain in the head just thinking about it.
Tell me ain't so PLEASE!
Isn't there a Real Network File System out there which is simple?
