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
Exports list on localhost:

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...

Actually, the answer is circles as there was an "s" in the original problem.

He's smarter than a first-grader! Unfortunately, its easy to pick apart his answer once its been given. That one was too tough for me to come up with.

And now we go live to Are You Smarter then a Fifth Grader?

this is why, little buddy, you should never leave this blog all together, even if are to be a father.

I have no idea what any of this means. On a separate note, how's the house after the tree incident?

Good thanks. It's been tarped since Tuesday morning and Saturday the adjuster's coming out. Should be all downhill from here.
