Readonly emdebian on NAND - using SAMBA
September 25, 2010 06:17AM

after having continued problems getting the emdebian samba up and running I'm using the below solution.
With the emdebian I couldn't get user authentication working properly:
  • smbpasswd missing
  • Reuse smb.conf + /etc/samba/smbpasswd didn't work out
  • Root cause analysis didn't help (increase loglevel, start smbd -i only brought 'no valid use / password not found'

    Solution was easy once figured out:
    1) Change /etc/apt/sources.list
    #deb http://www.emdebian.org/grip squeeze main
    deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian squeeze main
    2) Remove emdebian samba if already installed
    apt-get remove samba samba-common
    3) Install debian samba for armel
    apt-get install samba samba-common samba-common-bin
    4) Configure smb.conf
    workgroup = Dockstar
    security = user
    share modes = yes

    path = /shares/content
    public = no
    writable = yes
    comment = Dockstart content
    guest ok = no
    valid users = user
    5) Create user
    useradd user
    smbpasswd -a user

    Lets see if I can fit the image still on the NAND device :-)
