The system-config-netboot GUI should support configuration of the per-client
/etc/fstab files in the snapshot directories and enable easy configuration of
nfs /home mount points.
The implementation should give users the opportunity to either use NFS
or to configure automount maps for the /home directories.
Reassigning to component owner.
Currently whole /home is mounted read-write (I added it to default snapshot
files), so users can normally log in and write to their home. Is this a wrong
solution for some reason? Or can I just close this bug now?
System-config-netboot is entering maintainance-only phase and the whole package will be deprecated soon. There are no plans for active development, only high severity issues bugfixing.
