- Feb 25, 2010Accordig to http://netatalk.sourceforge.net/2.0/htmldocs/afpd.conf.5.html (under "Logging Options"):
"Extended logging capabilities are only available if Netatalk was built using --with-logfile. As of Netatalk 2.0, the default is --without-logfile since the logger code is partially broken and needs a complete rewrite (the -setuplog option might not work as expected). If Netatalk was built without logger support then the daemons log to syslog."
I checked in /var/log and don't see any netatalk*.log file, so I'm assuming netatalk has been compiled without logging enabled.
Here's where I show my lack of *nix skillz: where would I find the syslog on an unslung system?

I just tried this on my nslu2 running debian lenny
1) It does not work when using
AppleVolumes.default: /home/user "user"
and the default afpd.conf
2) It does work without authentication using
afpd.conf: "Time Capsule" -uamlist uams_guest.so
AppleVolumes.default: /mnt/directory "TimeMachine"
In case 1) I get errno -1069 in the terminal or
when using finder: Volume user could not be mounted
Under 2) I used finder and connected via
as guest - and there it was !
Hmm, what are the log files in your case
/var/log/syslog has some info in my case.
Otherwise it should not be too hard to compile under debian but the problem must have a simpler solution than that.
