Description of problem:
When i tried to run StarOffice in an hetereogenous ambient, where we have
NIS and remote home areas, mounted from Sun, IBM, SGI and Network Appliance
fillers. When i install StarOffice, that not works. I get a tip in a
support forum from Sun, and the update of the Kernel for version 2.4.9
solves the problem, and it is true!
I got a fresh source from kernel.org and all things works!!!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.You need a remote home area using NIS, running RedHat 7.1
2.Install Staroffice in system as root, and install as user in remote home
area. In the first time you run, it works.
3.Try again to run Star Office and you get an error.
I think this is a importante issue about NFS and is very important for a
large number of people running linux in a heterogeneus Unix environment,
whit a large use of NFS and NIS.
I ugraded the kernel (on the host) to 2.4.9. Then staroffice worked.
