31  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Sharing files between computers on: October 31, 2008, 19:06:38 PM
I'm not sure about ntfs, I'll try tomorrow... Today I tried sharing my whole / folder, which works well, but the /mnt folder is empty, so it doesn't follow other partitions automatically. I'll try to mount the others separately, maybe it will work.

For the quick how-to:

1. Make sure the nfs daemon is running on both computers (activate in tasma-system).
2. On the server computer, edit /etc/exports and add the line: / client_computer_name(rw,sync)
(make sure to change client_computer_name to the name of the computer that shall be allowed to mount the server's /
If you only want to share one folder, make the line something like: /home client_computer_name(rw,sync)
3. reboot (not sure if necessary)
4. Create a folder on the client computer where the other computer's fs shall be mounted (let's assume it's /server_name)
5. Open a console and become root (su root)
6. Type mount server_computer_name:/ /server_name -o sync,hard,intr
(make sure to replace server_computer_name by the server's name, or you can also use the server's IP)
If only mounting a folder, use mount server_computer_name:/home /server_name -o sync,hard,intr
7. Now you can access the other computer's fs in /server_name as if it was local

The options sync, hard and intr should be used to avoid file corruption because of network connection failures. It's quicker without sync, but not recommanded!

You can automount on the client by adding a line to fstab but this will cause problems if the other computer is not available (boot process stops and hangs). So do not use on mobile computers like laptops.

All this I learned from: http://nfs.sourceforge.net/nfs-howto/ and especially from http://nfs.sourceforge.net/nfs-howto/ar01s03.html

I hope that helps for now....

When you use "share entire homes", ALL directories and files of Pardus are readable.

This is exactly what I intended. Being able to access ALL files from my desktop with my laptop, even windows partitions and mounted CDs. But Samba seems to be broken in Pardus (see other thread). So I found a better solution: NFS. NFS allows mounting the filesystem of another computer as if it was local. If anybody is interested, I can post a How-to.

I think I log in as my normal user (frisil). That's what my Superkaramba desktop applet shows. Normally it shows "users logged in: frisil frisil" (why two times, BTW?). When I connect to samba from the laptop, it shows frisil 4 times.

I wrote a bug report here:

35  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / bug in tasma? samba users lost! on: October 26, 2008, 02:35:36 AM
I'm still trying to configure samba. When I use the samba module in Tasma (as root), I can add samba users and assign passwords. However, if I exit the module and load it again, these settings seem to be lost and the users list is empty again. Does anyone know what this is about?

Thanks for your reply, Lisa!

But I will most certainly not wipe my internal harddrive with 4 OSs on it with zeroes, it would be too much work reinstalling everything. My workaround for now is to hook up the external drive to my laptop and access the laptop from my desktop via samba, complicated, but this way I can copy data from and to the drive. I think I will buy a new desktop computer in the near future anyway, as mine is already over 5 years old and rather slow (so no compiz for me).

I just want to know what is wrong with this thing, as I have no explanation for it...
37  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Sharing files between computers on: October 25, 2008, 17:10:25 PM
And at this moment I don't know what your id is on "the other computer".
This is all about id and properties of a file (Linux security).

I know about Linux security (right management of files), but I don't know what Samba wants from me... It doesn't accept the id and password from the other computer, although it is the same on both machines.
38  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Sharing files between computers on: October 25, 2008, 15:14:10 PM
I can access all folders and files that belong to root and are readable for every user. I even created a new test folder called /usr/share/sambatest, if I copy files there (as root) the other computer can access and copy them, but only if they are readable for all. What I lack is just the following: I want to be able to access my home folder with my laptop without having to copy/move/change permissions of the files first. Both computers use the same user with same user id and same password. So it should be possible somehow.
But when I click on my home folder on the other computer, a window pops up asking for a username and password. My username and password does not work.
39  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: Sharing files between computers on: October 25, 2008, 01:58:14 AM
Thanks for the links with samba: I chose "share entire homes"  and now I can access the complete directory structure of the other computer with smb://computer_name

Only one problem: When I want to go to the personal user folders in home, I am asked for a username and password. Entering the username and pasword of the folder's owner does not work, nor does root and rootpassword. What do I enter here? How do I set up this password protection (or disable it?)
40  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: strange USB problem - I'm clueless - any ideas? on: October 25, 2008, 00:22:27 AM
The problem does not happen with USB-sticks, I just copied 8 GB from my mp3 stick and it worked. Then I tried my harddrive again - no subfolders again, but only on the 2nd partition?!? The harddrive is a western digital 1 TB sata drive and has 3 partitions (all ext3). Only the 2nd partition seems to be problematic, but only with this computer. Really strange is: 4 weeks ago I bought a harddrive from Maxtor, also 1 TB sata external.  On this drive, I created 2 ext2 partitions and formated them with reiserfs. I set up an encrypted second partition by using:

cryptsetup luksFormat /dev/sda2
luksformat -t reiserfs /dev/sda2   

I didn't have pardus then, so I did it with Sidux Erebos, it worked fine (at first)

I mounted the partition by using:

pmount /dev/sda2 secret

and accessed files at /media/secret

and unmounted:

pumount /dev/sda2

This worked for about a week, then the problem first happened. After entering the parapharse, the drive was mounted, but there were no subfolders. On my laptop, it worked all the time. I think the problem started when I wanted to open the 1st partition (not encrypted) with Mepis 6.5, also on my desktop computer. It didn't automount and pmount told be about a bad superblock. I booted back into Sidux and it worked, but Mepis refused to mount the first partition from now on. Then the problem with missing subfolders started, both with sidux and mepis. I installed a third os, Pardus, but it couldn't access the encrypted partition at all (encryption routines missing, I wanted to compile and install later). Then I accidently knocked the hard drive from my computer, the case shattered and it didn't work anymore. A week later, I bought a new drive, western digital. As I was suspicious about the encrypted partition and the errors it caused on my old Mepis, I didn't create an encrypted partition this time, just 3 normal ext3 partitions. I heard about encfs and encrypted folders and wanted to try that later. First I just used my new harddrive to backup some important data unencrypted.
But call it haunting, curse, geomantic echo or whatever (just kidding) - my computer seems to remember the problems with the old harddrive and its encrypted partition, because it's back with any partition 2 on any external harddrive! I am really clueless what that could be! Any ideas now after I gave more details? Or are you just as puzzled as me???

A torrent would be a workarround. I just want to access the other computer's files via network. I just need some help how to set it up (folder sharing, nfs, samba, etc.). What is the best and easiest solution?
42  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / strange USB problem - I'm clueless - any ideas? on: October 24, 2008, 12:38:52 PM
Since about two weeks my desktop computer shows strange behaviour with usb-harddrives. It seems to mount them correctly, but sometimes only the first layer of a folder is displayed in konqueror. If I go to a sub-folder, it seems to be empty. But it is not, on my laptop everything works correctly.

When my desktop displays folders correctly after mount (happens sometimes) and I start copying folders and files from the USB-drive to my internal harddrive, copying process stops after some time and I get an error message that the file I'm trying to copy does not exist.

When I copy to my external drive, I get a "cannot write" error after some time. It seems the computer somehow loses the connection to the USB drive.

This happens with all external drives and it's not Pardus specific, it happens with all three Linux distributions on this computer. Any idea what could be wrong? I have tried the onboard USB-plugs and a card with four additional usb-plugs, both show the same problem. I've never encountered anything like this before and I think something is wrong with my computer (hardware related?). Any ideas what it could be?
43  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Sharing files between computers on: October 24, 2008, 12:26:47 PM
My laptop and desktop both use Pardus 2008 now and are both connected to the same network switch. But I don't know how to access the files of the other computer. Both have homes for the same user, and I want to access both folders with both computers. Any easy way to do this?
44  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: How to FORCE DMA onto cd/dvd-drives? on: October 21, 2008, 19:43:43 PM
I tried editing modprobe.conf.dist in /etc/modprobe.d to add another (ubuntu) fix I found

## Turn on DMA for DVD ############################
alias ata_generic off
alias pata_atiixp on

but my system doesn't react to that. lsmod still shows:

pata_ali               14852  14
sata_uli               11268  0
pata_acpi              11136  0

scsi_mod              145268  4 sg,sd_mod,sr_mod,libata
dock                   14352  1 libata

Do I have to change the initramfs? How do I do this? Do the changes have to be put somewhere else (initramfs creation file?) ? Please help someone, I'm desparate...
45  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: How to FORCE DMA onto cd/dvd-drives? on: October 21, 2008, 18:54:06 PM
Sorry, this doesn't really help. I added the lines

#added by user
blacklist ata_generic

at the end of /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-compat file but it doesn't help, when I reboot, it's still there!

I tried modprobe -r ata_generic and then it's gone. However, this does not help, because the dmesg shows the same output as before and drives stay slow.

Where are kernel modules loaded at startup? mabe if I take out scsi_mod my system would be back to what it used to be with older Linux versions?

My older sidux ran the following modules and DMA worked fine:
