I have the following setup:
- Host machine: Ubuntu 13.04 (64-bit)
- Guest machine on Virtualbox: Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS (32-bit)
I'm working on a project that lives inside the VirtualBox guest. I edit the files using Sublime Text over a NFS share. I'm using NFS since I believe it's offers the best speed for guest->host sharing, which is helpful when I'm doing big searches from the editor or running visual tools like
gitk on the host.
This works well, but there's one issue: Sublime normally notices any changes in the project immediately and refreshes the project tree. Over the NFS share, however, it only notices some changes (new or removed files) when I save a file. Generally I often end up using "rescan folders" manually, like after switching branches in the repository.
Is there a configuration flag for NFS that would make the file notification messages communicated? (What is this notification mechanism called, while we're at it?)
If not, would you recommend switching to Samba or SSHFS?
