Hi, I’m new to Haiku and trying to replicate my usual “linux” workflow which consists on ssh remote and samba shares access to a virtual machine
I’ve got no problem booting Haiku on VirtualBox, and enable sshd but I struggle a lot with samba
I’ve managed to get samba up and running, I can browse the shares from my MacOS computer but after a while (a matter of minutes) my ssh sessions freeze and Haiku UI become unstable, the desktop is erased in blue and moving the mouse repaints the icons and launch tools.
I’ve not found a solution to launch nmbd and smbd as services so I launch them from the command line as daemons.
I suspect a problem in the samba haiku port itself but would like to know if some of you have found a way to get samba running and being stable…
You might have troubles if you’re browsing from Windows. Windows access to samba shares have always been a PITA for me. MacOS is really forgiving for that matter, I never had a single problem browsing any kind of quick&dirty samba setups
This now works for me - many thanks. I installed fuseSMB from HaikoDepot and made the alterations to the config file as per instructions but I found that the nmbd was not running. If I started it manually then the HAIKU-D630 machine (this one) would show in Windows 7 and was fully accessible. I then added the /bin/nmbd line after the /bin/smbd in the UserBootscript file and it now works on boot up.
I don’t know where the Windows machine is supposed to show up in Haiku but it does not really matter that much to me as at least I can transfer files from Windows to Haiku even though I do it from the Windows machine.
The cgimenez instructions could either be incorporated into the FuseSMD instalation or made readily available.
