I'm using a workstation:
Linux bla.blablaabeba.no 22.214.171.124-42.fc8 #1 SMP Tue Oct 30 13:18:33 EDT 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
and a server:
Linux goofy 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 #1 SMP Mon Oct 16 14:39:22 EDT 2006 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
And have a strange problem with saving tif images to an NFS share. This works fine on a FC6 32bit client on the same network.
To create the problem, I simply make an image and GIMP and save it to somewhere on the NFS share. The image gets saved, but the resulting file is corrupt. The same problem happens with other tools that save images to the nfs share, such as renderman's txmake.
If I save the image to a local drive, and later copy it to the nfs share the image is fine. Also, if I save it in a different format to the nfs share, such as png, everything works fine.
My guess it's either a problem with the 64bit tiff libraries or the nfs libraries in FC8 64bit.
Has anyone encountered this? Or have any suggestions how to fix this?
