Debian, SunSoft, and dselect
I've been trying for the past few days to get deselect to work with nfs.
Specifically, I am using an evaluation copy of SunSoft's PC-NFSPro (an nfs
server) to create an NFS export on my Windows 95 machine. In that export,
which is actually the Windows 95 CD-ROM, I have the Debian 1.3.1
>From my base install of Linux, which I made using the same CD, I can
mount, view, and move around the NFS partition. The CD reads fine, the
files are listed fine, and everything seems to work as it should.
Here's the trouble. I start dselect, and tell it to use an already
mounted NFS partition for Access. I then begin to give it the specifics
it needs regarding file locations. During this time, it will read the CD.
After a few moments however, it will return and say that there were no
*.deb files found. I can give it a directory path directly to deb files,
and I still get the same response. I have also tried this without
premounting the NFS partition, and it still happens.
I thought this may be related to SunSoft's implementation of NFS, but as I
said before, I have no trouble mounting, viewing, or browsing the CD and
I have used this CD on the very same Windows95 machine, using the same
CD-ROM, to install a local copy of Linux to a partition of the hard drive
(sharing the HD between Linux and 95). So I can't imagine it would be
the CD-ROM or the CD itself.
I would appreciate any ideas for solving this. Thanx in advance.
