NFS server file browsing problem on opensuse 12.2 - 1.6

Hello

i migrated my nfs server from opensuse 11.1 to 12.2. i’m connecting to the shared folders from a PPC.
nfs mount works fine, same as before : mount -o nolock <ip>:<path> <local_path>

but i can not ‘ls’ files. i can create delete do whatever i want by typing the exact filename on server side and i see the changes on server side. but i can’t list them in terminal. any suggestions about this problem?

Please show some actual computer output that illustrates your points

Hello, welcome here.

PLease note a few things. We allways like to see computer evidence when you tell you conclusions here. Thus you not (only) tell that you can not “list” something, we then want to see what you did like:

ls -l /path/to/the/file

and of course what is the output (and please also include the prompts before and after, thus we can see this is complete and the prompts tell more things that might be of interest). Same for your fstab entry. you should not tell you conclusion that it is OK, but show us

cat /etc/fstab

and on the server

cat /etc/exports

After all you have a problem and it is allways likely that you overlooked something (very human), but when we can not see exactly what you have, how can we help?

And like the above, please post those computer texts betewen CODE tags. You get them by using the # button in the toolbar of the editor.

Since I am not on the same computer now and I don’t have any chance to copy any data from the computer I’m working to this computer; I will write down the outputs manually ( if you please excuse me)

on server side (PC installed openSuse 12.2-1.6 with ip 10.18.2.113)

output of

cat /etc/exports
/srv/nfs    *(rw,no_root_squash,sync)

and

output of

ls -l /srv/nfs

on PowerPC side ( installed very simple version of kernel 2.4 (almost 1.5 mb) with ip 10.18.7.88)
here is telnet output from PPC

# mount -o nolock 10.18.2.113:/srv/nfs /shared_folder/
# ls -l shared_folder/
# 
# cat /etc/fstab
cat: /etc/fstab: No such file or directory

Please repeat the mount (after unmounting) with the -v option. Also
please show log entries.

> # ls -l shared_folder/

Please repeat the ls with the -a option, and be sure to use a slash in
front of the folder name.

I’m not sure what the trailing slashes are for. I’ve no idea whether
they affect anything, so please remove them before running commands.
