Bekijk de volledige versie : Samba config won't save

26-04-2006, 19:40
Hello, I followed this (http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=1984) tutorial (Only the samba instructions), but if I save my config by first pressing the ESC button and then type :w it won't save This is what I have also tried:

ESC button and then type :w
flashfs save
flashfs commit
flashfs enable

(If I reboot the changes are lost)

By the way, I'm using Oleg Firmware:

You need to use the following command :-

echo /etc/smb.conf >> /usr/local/.files

before flashfs save. This adds the samba config file to the list of files that are saved. This is given as part of the set up instructions you were using but it's not explained very well.

Now the config saved successful, but how can I access a share? I haven't created a share yet. (that I know) Samba is NOT anymore in demo mode. Tried it just a minute ago, but when I type in: \\ there's a message saying that it couldn't find the server, whats wrong? Or do I have to shutdown the FTP Server? I have done this to make sure SAMBA is running:

echo "/usr/sbin/smbd -D" >> /usr/local/sbin/post-boot
echo "/usr/sbin/nmbd -D" >> /usr/local/sbin/post-boot

And then I did this:

flashfs save
flashfs commit
flashfs enable

And I have created a share:

writeable = yes
browseable = yes
force user = admin

How to create a new share? Please read my previous post for more questions regarding SAMBA.
