Samba fixed in EasyShare again

November 29, 2022 — BarryK

Yeah, again, because this bug was supposed to be fixed. Thanks to don570 who reported it:

Have made a commit to github:

For now, if you are running Easy 4.5.1, you could manually edit /usr/local/EasyShare/samba-setup, change line 126 to this:

	pid directory = /var/run/samba

And also do the same for /etc/samba/smb.conf

You will have to turn off samba then back on, via the radiobuttons in EasyShare, or from a terminal:

# /etc/init.d/rc.samba restart

Sorry about that, the bug slipped through.

One very good thing for 4.5.2 is the kernel module vmd.ko now builtin. This has fixed the kernel unable to detect the internal drive in some modern computers.

The result of that problem was that when you do a frugal install and create an entry for the boot-loader, GRUB, rEFInd, Limine or whatever, at bootup in the initrd there were messages like "/etc/fstab not found" and "easy.sfs not found".

The first message was output by the 'mount' utility when it failed to mount the partition, due to the kernel unable to see the drive.
