How to mount /home from live cd using NFS?
I am using Knoppix 3.6 as a live cd plus a thumbdrive for saveconfig.
Although I'm familiar with mounting shares with NFS and can mount the / directory
of knoppix at a linux client, it has not been possible to mount the Knoppix /home directory.
Home lives on a ramdisk which is broken up into two parts: /ramdisk/home and /ramdisk/var.
Also /home is symlinked to /ramdisk/home.
I've tried several ways in the exports file to export the /home directory:
/ramdisk/home linda " "
/ramdisk linda " "
All give an error message of "invalid share" I run exportfs -rav
which is also read when starting the nfs daemons with /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server.
Can anyone tell me the magic words to place /home properly in the exports file so I can mount it?
