I have my sheevaplug setup with ubuntu 9.04. I have nfs-kernel-server installed and running.
Now, I want to set setup the nfs server in a way that it maps user ids from my laptop to the shevaplug. I found that this can be done with the map_static option in the /etc/exports file. However this option seems to be available only in the nfs-user-server. I cannot find this package.
Has anybody here done such a setup?
Is it sufficient if I compile and install this package: http://packages.ubuntu.com/source/intrepid/nfs-user-server?
Is it safe to do so and how do i revert this if things go wrong?
