Using Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3, I mount my NFS share exported from a Linux machine like this: My machine is a Linux 3.2.0-17-generic.

$ sudo mount_nfs -P precise:/media/sda2/datas/SAB /media/nfs1

However, after changes have been done on the exported directories on the Linux side, they are not always visible in the Finder. New directories are not visible, or files keep their previous name. Am I using mount_nfs incorrectly ?
