Samba


Ok, I'm running slackware 10.1 with KDE in X window, and I'm trying to setup a Samba shared drive so I can access it with my windows based systems on my home network. so far, i can't seem to find anything for it, and the control center just says it's not installed. so how do I install it?

Download the package and:
installpkg /path/to/samba-version.tgz

Or if you have swaret installed - just:
swaret --install samba

Either from one of the CDs or from one of the slackware ftp servers:
ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar....10-i486-1.tgz

Swaret on the other hand (which would make installations and updates easier) can be found at:
http://swaret.sourceforge.net/index.php

ok, downloaded it and ran the installpkg for the tgz file, and it gave me this
Code:
Installing package samba-3.0.10-i486-1...
PACKAGE DESCRIPTION:
samba: samba (SMB file and print server)
samba:
samba: Samba is an SMB file and print server for SMB and CIFS clients.  It
samba: allows you to make file space or printers on a Samba host available to
samba: any PCs running SMB clients (such as PCs running Windows).
samba:
samba: If you have any SMB servers (such as Windows NT/2K Server), you may be
samba: able to replace them by or supplement them with Samba. One of Samba's
samba: big strengths is integration, so you can use it to tie together your
samba: Linux hosts and Windows PC clients.
samba:
Executing install script for samba-3.0.10-i486-1...
now I went into KDE to configure Samba, and it says it can't find smb.conf where can I find this file? or do I have to run a configuration utility first?

It should be /etc/samba/smb.conf. Slack seems to create an example config that you could use to get you started:
cp /etc/samba/smb.conf-sample /etc/samba/smb.conf

Then customise the setup.
