OSX 10.4 Tiger is not an ideal operating system in which to run an NFS server. Well, at least not yet. I suppose that I'll continue to try and find the /exports syntax (or whatever it is this ex-BSD platform uses) but in the meantime, I did find a step-by-step guide which had me bring up, of all things, a GUI.

*le sigh*

The GUI was more difficult to understand than any command line I've used (outside of, let's say AIX *eyeroll*) and in the end I would NOT have been able to accomplish this task without the HOWTO. Either way, bask upon what you would assume would be an easy task -

On my Solaris box:
[root@quark: /]# df -k
Filesystem            kbytes    used   avail capacity  Mounted on
/dev/md/dsk/d0       33919014 11382953 22196871    34%    /
/proc                      0       0       0     0%    /proc
mnttab                     0       0       0     0%    /etc/mnttab
fd                         0       0       0     0%    /dev/fd
swap                 2506288      24 2506264     1%    /var/run
                     156144848 50469280 105675568    33%    /iTunes

On my mac:
BorgQueen:/ ehowton$ showmount -e

So using my Ampache PHP app, I add a new 'catalog' as a local filesystem pointing to my new NFS mount - it sees it, but not the 1251 directories underneath it. Hmmmm. I input the following three words into my Google search: ampache itunes NFS. Guess what the first hit is? My Xanga cross-post blog entry from last week! This could be a long, hard battle.

An Ampache thread in the FAQ validates my claim of NFS issues.

Anyone know what the unscrambled word for a moth's eye-spots are using the letters 'CCELIRS?' C'mon, I know there's some budding entomologists out there. I couldn't find any reference, and this is supposed to be at a 3rd grade level...
