(beowulf) mac samba share no longer accessible

Hello ,

i have noticed that on Devuan Beowulf i can no longer access the Smb share from my MacMini Server (running Mac OSX 10.6 hence Samba V.1)

on a separate partition running Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa i noticed the same issue, but got cleared with the help of this trick here


https://askubuntu.com/questions/1232691 … access-nas


however, on Devuan Beowulf, the same trick fails.

it seems also, that the

gvfs-smb

package is not included?


Thank you very much for the help.

Re: (beowulf) mac samba share no longer accessible

For Ceres, I found gvfs-backends:

$ apt-file list gvfs-backends | grep -iE 'smb|samba'
gvfs-backends: /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfsd-smb
gvfs-backends: /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfsd-smb-browse
gvfs-backends: /usr/libexec/gvfsd-smb
gvfs-backends: /usr/libexec/gvfsd-smb-browse
gvfs-backends: /usr/share/GConf/gsettings/gvfs-smb.convert
gvfs-backends: /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/org.gnome.system.smb.gschema.xml
gvfs-backends: /usr/share/gvfs/mounts/smb-browse.mount
gvfs-backends: /usr/share/gvfs/mounts/smb.mount

Based on my quick searching, it appears that gvfs-backends is not required by any of the other gvfs packages, which doesn't make too much sense.

$ apt-cache show gvfs\* | grep -iE 'Package|-backends'
Package: gvfs
Suggests: gvfs-backends
Package: gvfs-backends
Filename: pool/DEBIAN/main/g/gvfs/gvfs-backends_1.44.1-1_amd64.deb
Package: gvfs-fuse
Package: gvfs-bin
Package: gvfs-common
Package: gvfs-daemons
Suggests: gvfs-backends
Package: gvfs-libs

So maybe that's the package in question for Beowulf.

Re: (beowulf) mac samba share no longer accessible

Dear kapqa - this topic seems to me less distribution specific but SAMBA version specific. @work I run several SAMBA installations with several Windows fileshares - and every 2-4 years SAMBA or Microsoft or both break the working configurations. So a smb.conf on a linux running SAMBA 4.6 with for an M$-file server running on Windows 2003 fails with SAMBA 4.7. Fixed that -a  few month later the concept is broken with Windoz2012 replacing Windows 2003....
I don't want to blame SAMBA - they do a horrific job for me and M$- but they have to shot on a moving target - and backward configuration compatibility - as well as a configuration beauty contest isn't top one on their list.
As I don't have your environment here I cannot diagnose your problem - but maybe I can give you some hints.
1) You really don't care for security and need a quick and dirty fix - here you are:
Get the source of the last version which worked - spend an weekend in getting the necessary environment to get it compiled - install and enjoy.
2) If you like hacking - and like to learn more from your system setup SAMBA is a good starting point. (Good character building stuff!)
- Try to get your MAC Server to go to debug mode (RTFM)
- Read and try several documented and less documented modes and parameters in the samba client.
- Google for the error messages.
- Reconfigure smb.conf on both sides (and restart services)
- Succeed or fail. - Even if you fail you have learned a lot.

Re: (beowulf) mac samba share no longer accessible

Why use SAMBA between Linux and Mac? They are both UNIX variants so NFS or something similar is more likely to work.

The only situation I would want to use SAMBA is if I needed to share files between Windows and Linux systems.

Re: (beowulf) mac samba share no longer accessible

thank you,

yes, the error was probably on (my) mac-side.

resetted the whole network settings on the mac by deleting the respective *.plist and now the network sharing is functioning correctly and the mac is also shown in the devuan network.


please mark as solved.
