Re: [scl.org] Sharing Software Collections over NFS?



I don't know if this is useful for the this, but when we were doing
similar setups in the 90's we would have
/nfs/stuff/os/version/arch/{etc,bin,lib,scripts} which would have
readonly tools. The clients would copy them to their local etc on
first setup in the OS appropriate location so that they could have a
mutable version.
