I recently found some small bugs in Pnethood and I want to share my fixes, at same time I want to join some Pnethood patches that I found in the Puppy forum and make a new version to add those changes.

I know there are many Pnethood variants that fixes some things. That is a problem because confuse users about which is the latest version, makes the report of new bugs a problem (they could be already fixed in some private version) and without an unificated version its difficult to further support Pnethood.

HairyWill already mentioned he will not support Pnethood anymore. So, I sent a PM to HairyWill three months ago, basically I requested and approval to launch an official new version by myself, but he seems to be very busy and out of any Puppy Linux development in this moment.

I´ll wait a little more for an answer. Meanwhile I´ll continue to test this beta new Pnethood "0.6.6 version" of mine.

Any comment is welcome

Greetings,
clarf

If you want to maintain a single pnethood package, be aware that one of the fixes that makes it work with more recent puppies also stops it from working on slightly older puppies.

Thanks for the advice disciple.

I took the official 0.6.5 version as the regular base and then applied one for one all the fixes I have, these fixes are very specific and I don´t think anything will be broken for any puppy version.

I haven´t seen any fix to make it work with more recent puppies yet. But I´ll do a cross version test.

salutes,

Are you using any patches to the mount command?

Well, I´m using a modified code for the mount command.

Basically, I added to mount commands:

1. The iocharset=utf8 parameter when using cifs.
2. The workgroup=$DOMAINID parameter if user enabled Domain action (with and without cifs)

Would you know if Pnethood has some sort of limitation on the number of computers it can see on the network?
We have 19 computers at work and it will only see 17 of them.

The two it doesn't see are the last two I set up for new employees, I originally thought maybe I had done something wrong setting them up but they see the whole network and others can see them.
I then booted puppy 3 and Linneighborhood sees all 19 so I figure it is something in pnethood.

I am pretty sure I tried LameSMBxplorer but I don't remember the results.
It either saw less or the same, I will have to try it again Monday and see what it does.

The strange thing is that some older Puppy versions with Pnethood only see 10 computers, even though they say they are the same version of Pnethood as in Lucid Puppy so there must be some difference.

I tried installing Linneighborhood in Lucid 5.1.1 and it works, except you cant mount the shares, it seems at some point Mtab was changed to a symbolic link and that messes up the mounting of shares. I tried changing Mtab to make it not a link and after that you can mount the shares but the system changes it back to a symbolic link on reboot.

Two years ago, I saw a network of 12 Windows XP machines on which PNethood would see only 11 unless the scan time was raised.

I set it to 30 seconds, which is the max on the menu, but it didn't make a difference, thank you for the tip though.

Ok here are some things I tried today.
LameSMBxplorer doesn't seem to work in Lucid Puppy 5.1.1 it just scans and scans and locks up the network, I have to reboot the computer to free up the network(strange).

So I tried it in Fluppy and it sees 14 computers.

Just out of curiosity, what happens if you run nbtscan from the command line. Can it see all the machines?

If you run
Code:
smbclient -NL NAME

where NAME is the NETBIOS name of one of the other two machines, is it detected?
