He is talking about NFS and to my annoyance only group rights on the
primary group go through NFS. My normal user account who is member of
my smbmedia group, which is the primary group for mythtv, cannot
access files on mythtv NFS shares. While it can locally. (I have users
and groups through ldap, so the uid's and gid's are matching). So
through NFS you can have unexpected rights issues. I'm thinking of
stepping over to cifs(samba) shares in Linux. They are defined, so I
only have to find time to find out how to use it in Linux.
