StarOffice 5.2 over NFS doesn't work
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:38:10 EDT
We have a central server exporting out home directories and /usr/local via
NFS. Client workstations then mount /usr/local and /home/$USER from the
central server. With the latest errata kernel (2.4.9-7), Star Office 5.2
(installed in /usr/local) will not work on the client workstations.
The problem appears to be due to an NFS issue with the server. Downgrading
the server to a 2.4.6 kernel fixes the problem.
We fixed an nfs server bug in the 2.4.9-13 kernel released for 7.2 recently....
Does the errata kernel help ?
I upgraded over the weekend and the client workstations have been working all week without
problems, so it looks like it's fixed. You can close this one as resolved errata....
