Like any good Linux geek I have lots of old hardware kicking around my house — most of it running a variant or derivative of Ubuntu. However, in recent years Ubuntu is becoming more resource hungry and doesn’t run smoothly on my older gear. Even on my 4 year old Asus K55A, with lighter desktop environments, such as Mate and LXDE, the lag and lack of responsiveness is becoming unbearable.
I need to have a couple of network volumes mounted to my Linux laptop on a continual basis. One of those volumes has NFS file system so an entry in the fstab was easy enough. The other volume is a ClearCase vob on the proprietary MVSF file system. I’ve tried an fstab entry as mvfs but without success.

Then we’ll conditionally display the featured image below our post title if one exists.
