Trying to load a file on a NFS volume results in an error, where i am prompted to either edit the file read-only (which results in more errors) or edit a copy of the file.
Trying to save the file results in various errors, mostly involving locks on the file being saved.
In the following examples, my NFS server is running Linux Slackware 14.1 and is mounted from the client as /net/deimos - each client (a PC running Linux Mint and a guest OSX on the same machine under VirtualBox, using bridged networking) has a symlink 'deimos' in the home directory pointing to /net/deimos/home/user - so that ~/deimos points to the user's home account on the server.
Attempting to load a file on a NFS volume (linux mint client, linux slackware server) results in:
Document file 'test.ods' is locked for editing by:
Open document read-only or open a copy of the document for editing.
Attempting to load a file on a NFS volume (osx client, linux slackware server) seems to work fine.
Attempting to save to a file on a NFS volume (linux mint client, linux slackware server) results in:
Error saving the document Untitled1:
Error during shared access to /home/user/deimos/test.xls.
Attempting to save to a file on a NFS volume (osx client, linux slackware server) results in:
Error saving the document test.otd:
/net/deimos/home/user/temp/test.odt does not exist.
It is also worth noting that LibreOffice is the *ONLY* software which gives me this problem.
What version of LibreOffice are you running? Marking as NEEDINFO - once you tell us what version please set to UNCONFIRMED. Thanks
Oops, sorry. Totally forgot to include version.
Linux: (from the linux mint / ubuntu repositories)
Build ID: 40m0(Build:2)
OS X: (from the libreoffice.org website)
Build ID: 81898c9f5c0d43f3473ba111d7b351050be20261
Locale: en-US (en.UTF-8)
I just tested with 18.104.22.168 on the Linux Mint computer, and it gives me the same result as with 4.4.x.
If i mount my NFS volumes with -o nolock, this works around the problem, but might cause other issues.
...Except for saving on osx. Opening files over nfs forces read-only, though the error box no longer shows up, and saving to nfs still gives the error "<location>/<file> does not exist".
(sorry for the bunch of comments, there's no way to delete or edit them)
