Struggling with permissions on mounted Samba share
- Hi all,
I've got an Unslung NSLU2 (Unslung 6.10 beta I believe) that I use to
run the TwonkyMedia software for strea,ming to my MP3 player in my
living room. It's booting off a 4Gb USB stick and is just great.
What I'd like to do now is to mount a Windows server share (via Samba)
on the NSLU2 and make it appear as a directory that can be indexed by
the TwonkyMedia software. Whilst I can mount the share, I think the
permissions are wrong somewhere as it's just not being indexed by
The command I am using is:
smbmount //192.168.1.1/Music /public/DawnCottage -o
That command gives the following:
drwxrwxr-x 4 guest everyone 4096 Jul 1 21:41 Athlete
drwxrwxr-x 7 guest everyone 4096 Jul 1 19:57 Compilations
drwxrwxr-x 3 guest everyone 4096 Jul 1 21:42 Crowded House
drwxrwxr-x 4 guest everyone 4096 Jul 1 21:44 Daft Punk
drwxrwxr-x 2 guest everyone 4096 Jul 1 21:45 Daniel Powter
drwxrwxrwx 1 guest everyone 4096 May 1 21:06 DawnCottage
drwxrwxr-x 4 guest everyone 4096 Jul 1 19:18 Girls Aloud
drwxrwxr-x 4 guest everyone 4096 Jul 1 19:19 Jack Johnson
As you can see, the permissions are different on the DawnCottage
folder - the mountpoint. The directories are all within /public and,
as you can see, I want the mounted share to appear as a directory
within the local music collection (in /public).
TwonkyMedia runs as root on the NSLU2 so I would think that it has
permission to view anything...
Can anyone point me in the right direction of what I may need to do?
