RE: [Evolution] Problems with NFS

Yep.  I am using mbox over NFS. . .

As to the question about what bug number this was - of course I did not
write that down!

I would VERY much prefer not to have to compile Evo before using it as a
company-wide solution.  Supporting and updating software with custom options
is not high on my list of desirable tasks.

What are my options at present?  What does Ximian plan to implement, if
anything, before 1.0?

Lemme guess ... you use mbox over NFS, right?

I found that this has been registered as a bug on Bugzilla

is being addressed as a priority is unclear:

I had been happily using Evo for quite some time, when one
day I moved my
home directory to an NFS share. . .

Now, I am unable to receive mail due to locking problems
with fcntl(2).
This has basically made Evo useless to me.

As a sys admin, this seems to me to be a major issue.  I
have been at
several sites where all user home directories as located on
an NFS share as
mine are.  I would very much like to make Evo our app of
choice for personal
info mgmt. and email but this will prevent that.

What is the priority for addressing this issue?  (Please
don't tell me I can
fix it by recompiling with an option!  ;)

Thanks for all the hard work!
