> Could you do ls -l /mnt, and include your fstab as well as your
/etc/exports file? This is very important because maybe the issue lies
with permissions of the files and directories, as well as whether or
not those are the actual mountpoints for the drives, symlinks, or the
like (at least in my case).

Hi Garrett,

I've been aware of the symlink problem, but that shouldn't be the cause.

drwxrwxr-x  31 nobody   users   4096 Jan 17 18:47 music
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     wheel    512 Jan  5 17:07 stick

which reminds me of the fact, that I cannot mount ext2fs devices as a
regular user. Maybe that is the problem? I'll try a non-external hdd share
