Re: OpenOffice shared installation over NFS problems

Hi, sorry I've got a large backlog of mail at the moment.  I guess your
classes started already :(

There were a lot of NFS problems what were fixed for 1.1.  Maybe you could
test if the problem still occurs on 1.1?  If not, please file a bugreport so
the problem doesn't get forgotten.

This is the first report I have seen about this type of installation, so as
you say there is nothing relevant in the readme.

You might like to look in OOo IssueZilla for issues with the word NFS in
their summary.
