When I update a file on the nfs-server the nfs-kubuntu-client does not
see the change.  This effects diskless-nfs-workstation's centralized
software updates and nfs mounted $HOME.

Kubuntu's kde4.x appears to be missing FAM (gamin) support for NFS / (root) or NFS /home.
i.e. kdelibs-bin is built without libfam-dev/libgamin-dev as noted in /usr/share/doc/kdelibs-bin/changelog.Debian.gz

Running 3200 diskless clients (kde3.5) - changing files on the server are reflected on the clients via gamin/fam.  I've just started beta-testing Kubuntu's kde4 on the diskless workstations. I've run into the problem of not being able to update software on the server due to the diskless nfs clients not being able to "see" changes made on the server (e.g. /usr/share/applications/NEW_APP.desktop).

Here is more detailed thread on kde forum - it was suggested I ask Kubuntu about libfam support.
