Mounting Linux /usr/man to SunOS /usr/share/man

Mounting Linux /usr/man to SunOS /usr/share/man

Post by Chris Johnst » Fri, 23 Jul 1993 07:22:29



Hi there!

I have been able to mount my linux root volume to the
Sun 1+ that we have here.  Works like a charm!

I went to mount my linux:/usr/man to the sun at mount point
/usr/share/man because no man pages are installed on our
Sun (not enough disk space anymore).

I used the command:

mount -o soft -t nfs linux:/usr/man /usr/share/man

I can chdir to the area and see the appropriate subdirectories
where everyone has read access to the files.  The instant we try
to read a man page (i.e. man routed), the connection locks up and
we must reboot the linux box.  In the mean time we get a timeout
on nfs connection error.  What gives?

Any comments, or hints?

Chris

Set the block size to 1034, suns use 8192 by default.

In NFS the block size is set on the client

 
 
 

1. automount won't mount /usr/share/man

Hi,

I've run into a bit of a snag with the automounter, and I don't quite
know what else to do.  Both the client and host are 2.3.  Automount is
working on everything *except* automounting /usr/share/man.  No
error messages or anything -- it's like it doesn't know it's suppose
to mount that filesystem.  I can successfully mount it manually
though and run 'man'.

auto_master:
------------------------------------------------------
# Master map for automounter
#+auto_master
/net            -hosts          -nosuid
/home           /etc/auto_home
/-              /etc/auto_direct

auto_direct:
-------------------------------------------------------
/usr/local              palermo:/usr/local
/usr/apps               palermo:/export/usr/apps
/usr/answerbook         palermo:/export/usr/answerbook
/usr/man                palermo:/usr/share/man

Answerbook and other apps automount and run fine.  Someone point
me in the right direction?

thanks for any info,
