This is not your classic programming question and since I'm quite new to this (really cool!) site, I'm not sure if this is the place, so I'll try anyway.
I work in a lab when all the guys use PCs with Windows and access the lab linux servers via ssh.
I prefer linux, so I have a local installation of ubuntu 10.4 on my PC. I mount the home of our lab server using mount server:/home /mnt/home/. I can then access the files on the server (I had to change my local UID to match the one assigned to me on our server in order to be able to write to my home dir).
The problem is all the (symbolic) links I have on the server don't work when I access them through the mounted location. I guess the system simply tries following the link in my local /home instead on server:/home.
Is there a way to make the links work?
