It all works fine connection wise and I can add books and meta no problem.

My question is, will this work or have I missed something. I worried about things like DB locks and indexes.

I do not want to run X on the linux box all the time and also found the linux GUI was not as good at collecting metadata as the Mac version (did not try to tweak it at all, so that is probably just me :-).
It is just you
Calibre is built from the same code, so other than OS efficiencies, they should work the same.

Calibre was not designed for Client-server operation, so ONLY one user should connect to the database/library at a time
