Software News   Software News : Network File System implementation aNFS (f.k.a. ch_nfs) now GPL. Help needed!
   posted by Cyborg on 6-Mar-2008 8:32:12 (2758 reads)
Original news by Jens Langer:
I just want to let you all know that I have put the sources of the former ch_nfs NFS client (part of AmiTCP) from Carsten Heyl online in a new project:

After the GPL release by Carsten in 2003, I unfortunately hadn't the time to setup the new project and try to compile the sources accordingly. Now the sources are online in a SVN repository and every interested developer is invited to contribute to the new public aNFS project. The current main task is to get the sources compiled/linked and running again.

Unfortunately Carsten couldn't supply all of the sources because he lost some of them :( . But at least the NFS backend should be completely there. What is currently missing are some amiga<>unix conversion routines as well as a proprietary hash implementation for managing the directory caches. But the rest should be straight forward ;)

So if you have some time/motivation or if you are a filesystem/handler expert (Olaf, joerg, Colin ;) you are highly invited to contribute as I think we all can do very well with an updated and native NFS client on OS4 ;)

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

@ Moxee

While you are at it, the item is rather a generic "Software news" than "AmigaOne news" item

From Wiki;

A network file system is any computer file system that supports sharing of files, printers and other resources as persistent storage over a computer network. The first file servers were developed in the 1970s, and in 1985 Sun Microsystems created the file system called "Network File System" (NFS) which became the first widely used network file system. Other notable network file systems are Andrew File System (AFS), NetWare Core Protocol (NCP), and Server Message Block (SMB), also known as Common Internet File System (CIFS).

This is quite interesting - I use the old (m68k) NFS every day.
