Hi,

I would like to work always in Linux but I need Matlab software and there is no Matlab for Linux PPC (Octave is not enough for my homeworks). I want to edit a LaTeX document in Linux with pictures form Matlab under MacOSX but I don't know how to transfer or to share files between 2 OS at the same time, running these 2 OS at same time (MacOSX under MOL).

Thank you in advancend!

You can do it if you set up a NFS server on your linux and mount the NFS share from OSX running inside MOL. I've done it. Another possibility is to use samba to share a folder. Both methods are easy - there are plenty of howtos out there for both nfs and samba.

For the same reasons I did the following, it's simple and works great fo me:

boot osx and go in Preferences Panel -> Shared, here you can start the windows share service for your own Documents folder. Now on Linux you can access your data or mount it via samba.

bye

Thank you!

I'm going to try the NFS solution because I have installed a NFS server in Linux but not samba support.

Alternatively, the files can be placed on an hfsplus partition, either the osx partition or a dedicated other partition. That will be mountable and viewable from osx.

I think el_Salmon wants the partition to be read-writable from both OS's simultaneously.

That is rw from both at once. hfsplus is the native file system format for OSX and, with hfsplus tools, can be mounted under linux. Easily visible under both oses.

You should not mount a filesystem in both MOL and linux at the same time. It will break your filesystem, hence the suggestion for an FS that natively takes care of locking issues so two OSes can use the same FS.

The MOL filesystem code is now more modular (with version 0.9.72) so I we could consider writing a FS shim for MOL, but it wouldn't be on the top of my list of things to do. If anyone is interested in writing such a thing, feel free to email me and we'll discuss it.
