Subject: [gentoo-user] no_root_squash equivalent for virtualbox shared folders?
Date: Wed, 20 Jul 2011 22:36:08
Message-Id: j07l4i$tha$
1 I've been trying to share /usr/portage on a gentoo host with a
2 virtualbox gentoo guest, but I'm having an identity crisis ;)
4 The /usr/portage/ share mounts perfectly on the gentoo guest,
5 but even root (on the gentoo guest) can't write to the shared
6 portage directory.
8 After hours of googling and putzing around with mount options,
9 I'm pretty sure that root on the host is not the same user as
10 root on the virtualbox guest.
12 This seems analogous to an NFS mount without the 'no_squash_root'
13 mount option, but I haven't discovered the analogous solution
14 for vboxfs mounts.
16 Any applications of the cluestick would be most welcome :)
