smbsh /smb: Do I create the directory /smb

smbsh /smb: Do I create the directory /smb

Post by Mark Worsdal » Sat, 04 Nov 2000 09:22:10


Using Samba 2.0.7 FreeBSD3.4

Using smbsh and the docs say when you are in the smbsh you can do ls

When I do this it stated not found.

So thinking maybe like mounts I need to create it, so I did, still

Can anyone shed light on this?

He came from Econet - Oh no, I've run out of underpants :(

1. SMB, printing over smb, kcmshell smb fail on Red Hat 7.3

I have just installed Red Hat 7.3, replacing Mandrake 8.2 (whose KDE3
upgrade wasn't quite working right).  I reformatted / and /boot while
leaving /home intact,.  In many respects 7.3 works very well.  It looks
good and works in most respects. But I can't get it to print.

I don't hook the printer to my machine directly; this is my home system, and
there's a Win98 box in the same room, connected via Ethernet.  I use smb to
print to the Epson via that machine; in Windows, it's a no-brainer, and
Network Neighborhood "just works".  When I installed Mandrake (8.1 and 8.2
both), I was impressed by how well it handled that arrangement.  But when I
installed Red Hat 7.3, anaconda never even asked me about printers.  It
just installed a zillion packages (custom selected) and finished.

I note that during one attempt to install, anaconda hung trying to read
lprng-3.8.9 (or whatever) off of the install CD (which I had burned from an
iso download).  And since anaconda locks the drive (a MAJOR problem), I had
to red-button restart and select all packages again, reformat, etc. And of
course I unselected lprng.  I don't know if that's the problem; is it
needed for smb printing?  Kpackage sees it on the cd and lists its files,
but doesn't seem to offer the "install" button.

Any clues are much appreciated!  Thanks.
