[meta-freescale] fatal error while init the repo on a nfs mounted drive

        i am trying to initialize a repo (for yocto development - but it seems to be using the same infrastructure as android). 

since I lack space on the OS drive, I nfs mounted another disk 
(filesystem is ext4 but that probably is irrelevant on the mount-client 

I try to initialize the repo with the command

./repo init -u https://github.com/Freescale/fsl-community-bsp-platform -b dylan

and get the error

fatal: unable to start /mnt/lvm/public/.repo/repo/main.py
fatal: [Errno 13] Permission denied

Permissions are fine on the disk. manually I can do file operations without a problem.

Is it impossible to have the repo on an nfs drive (even at the penalty of slower processing)?

Thank you for your help
