How do I make my ubuntu install an NFS server. So that it is accessible to another system running XBMC on my network?

Output of exportfs -v:

root@amith-dualcore:# exportfs -v

The client is running xbian on a Raspberry Pi, having XBMC 12.0-RC1.

package nfs-kernel-server? And then refresh the exports? sudo exportfs -a And how exactly are you mounting? – gertvdijk Feb 9 '13 at 16:11
Please include the output of exportfs -v in your question and what kind of XBMC this is. Running on Ubuntu? On an embedded media device? Do you have a regular Ubuntu machine to test the server on? And have you tried as host range? As a * will make it a hostname. – gertvdijk Feb 9 '13 at 16:17

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – gertvdijk Feb 9 '13 at 16:12
