I am unable to compile LaTeX files whenever they are on a particular network drive. I am using ubuntu lucid and mount a samba share in fstab like so:
//domain.com/me$ /home/me/H_DRIVE cifs credentials=/home/me/.smbpasswd,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
When I try to compile any file on this share with latex or pdflatex I get the message:
~/H_DRIVE$ pdflatex foo ---------------------- This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-1.40.10 (TeX Live 2009/Debian) entering extended mode ! I can't find file `foo'. <*> lecture2 (Press Enter to retry, or Control-D to exit) Please type another input file name:
The file is certainly there, I can edit it etc. The same file compiles fine locally. Is this a known issue? I couldn't find out much about this, but it seems it may be because of the size of the filesystem (no idea, but it must be pretty big) or because of cifs/samba.
