#3559 closed defect (fixed)

Not possible to mount jffs directories via nfs

Reported by: cozmic Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Using r11522, WGT634U Kernel 2.6 I'm not able to access my USB HD via NFS.

I think it's a problem with nfsd and this mini_fo mechanism to merge the squashfs and jffs2 filesystems.
The mountpoint /mnt/usb-storage is created at runtime in the jffs filesystem when a usb-storage device is detected (I fixed the usb-storage script, see ticket #3551)

When I try to mount this directory via nfs, the server responds with NFSERR_STALE.
When I use /mnt instead (that exists in squashfs), mounting via NFS works.

The unfs3 and samba don't have this problem, but the unfs3 uses 6MB of RAM and seems rather slow, samba does not really provide POSIX rights management. I could not test the kernel nfsd because of #3558.

Additional info: tmpfs directories can be mounted maybe it's better to drop /mnt and use /tmp or /tmp/mnt instead.
