SMB semantics and Linux
- Although I can examine shares on my LS 160 with Linux and copy files
back and forth, I cannot directly open a file on a share. Here's an
example diagnostic when I try to use gedit:
Could not open the file "smb://ls160/dmk/nfs-howto.html" because
access was denied.
When I look at the file's permissions via gnome, it says they're 777,
but owned by root.root. I mounted the share from my Linux system as
user "dmk". And when I look on the LS160 directly, the file is 644
owned by dmk.dmk.
I guess I don't understand how SMB permissions work. I'd like to be
able to access files on the (LS160) server directly, rather than just
copy on/off. Could someone educate me? Thanks.
(BTW, I have gotten NFS to work, and I can do this via an NFS mount,
but I'm curious why I can't get it to work via SMB.)
