Compiling over NFS

Ever needed to compile over exported NFS system in Linux. I needed it to compile some programs on my PC using a compiler in a virtual box ;-)

On the NFS server

add the following line to /etc/exports (Debian/Ubuntu systems)

/path/to/exported/directory *(rw,no_subtree_check,insecure,no_root_squash)

On the client machine (the one that will compile)

add the following line to /etc/fstab /path/to/mnt/point nfs user,rw,exec 0 0

Note: replace with the server IP or hostname

Warning: this setup is TOTALLY INSECURE!!

but who cares ;-)

BUG! -- the Biomedical Unix Geeks club

Biomedical Engineering make extensive use of software. Signal processing algorithms and other aspects of the biomedical engineering needs extensive study of computer science and software engineering. Unix platform is of special importance in the medical field due to its stability and ubiquity.
This club is for all biomedical engineers who love Unix, Software Engineering and Computer Science.

IMHO, Unix provides the best environment for the study of algorithms and computer science. The Unix tools and development also implements important point of the software engineering. Hence, came the idea of this club.

Please share your ideas with me on how this should go!
