What am I doing wrong? I am using Puppy 528 in a Full install

sh-4.1# mkdir /srv/Downloads
mkdir: cannot create directory `/srv/Downloads': No such file or directory
This works in all Linux'es.
Code:
mkdir -p /srv/Downloads
it was mentioned in an earlier post.

Linux mkdir requires use of -p parm to create multi-level directories from current location.

Hope this helps

Since I have had cause to be working alot with Samba lately one thing was annoying me. No simple solution to map a network drive from a pup client.

This little script does just that and plonks an icon on the desktop, unmountable too. (only if you use rox as a desktop). It also puts a link in $HOME, in case you don't use rox desktop.

I made it mainly for myself but why not share?

You can run the script from wherever you want, also has a Startup item which has a 2 minute timeout. It only supports one share, use Pnethood if you want to mount more shares.

It has a very simple setup gui. Everything you need should be in recent Pups, (mount.cifs, nmblookup). No need for samba to use this from a client only machine. It automatically overlays all your current icon themes with the SMB logo and makes a new icon called drivesmb48.png. Try switching icon themes Cool .

Have fun!

EDIT: almost forgot, the smb logo! You must place it in /usr/share/icons or the script will die.

Great.

Another idea: TaZoC's LH64b4. If you're still has his running, look at his OOTB smb.conf. There is mention in the Global section for use of simlinks and allowing LAN use of these.

I also believe that I "may" have simlinked using your SLACKO-SAMBA as well, but, I'll have to check when I'm home again on that.

Mind you, this relates to, say, using the Public folder in my "SAMBA Simple Management" widget to "extend" what is shared via that "common" locaton.

Hope this is in the same forest as your post.

(space required before first "restart"??)

Thanks so much for this. Very easy to use. I was up and running almost straight away!

Thanks to the contributors here, I was able to implement Samba on Puppy with ease. In contrast to several years ago when I tried to get Samba working on a Red Hat box - and failed miserably - this time the practical examples got me up and running in a short evening. I was even able to add my Windows users so my few remaining Windows boxes (Win98 and Win2k, nothing later) can log in automagically.

Part of what makes Puppy a success is the teamwork and camaraderie of this forum. Thanks again.

The only further issue that I'd like to see discussed here would be security. My router blocks smb requests from the Internet, so when I had a lot of Windows boxes, I never worried much about my privacy. Is there anything I should be concerned about with Samba?
