I get "General input/output error while accessing" when trying to open a file on an NFS share [closed]
I'm running LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 on Xubuntu (Linux) 13.04 64-bit.
I have a Windows 7 x64 box that provides NFSv3 shares on my LAN via haneWIN NFS Server 1.2.11.
My Linux boxes mount these shares via fstab. Example:
jarvis:/Shared /mnt/jarvis/Shared nfs udp 0 0
When I try to open a .ods spreadsheet on the share (which was created in LibreOffice on Windows), I get an error popup that says "General input/output error while accessing" followed by the filename.
Why is this happening? It's not a general share issue, as I can open the file in Gnumeric just fine.
I've read that it may be a locking issue, and that commenting out the following lines in /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/soffice may help:
# file locking now enabled by default SAL_ENABLE_FILE_LOCKING=1 export SAL_ENABLE_FILE_LOCKING
In fact, it does help, but why is it necessary to make such an arcane change to a system-level file?
Update: Mounting with oweng's fstab options does not solve the issue for me. This may be because of a difference with HaneWIN, such as the fact that it only implements up to NFSv3.
