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 ;-)
