SAMBA/LINNEIGHBORHOOD Question


LinNeighborhood always requires me to log into KDE under root in order to mount a network drive....

I am getting fed up of having to log out of my norm account to mount a drive. Is it possible for me to get it to allow me to mount a network drive as a normal user in LIN neighborhood?


Thanks!

yes it is possible:
open up your terminal and su to root
once this is done you will type these two commands:
chmod +s /usr/bin/smbmnt
chmod +s /usr/bin/smbumount
this will give your user rights to these files without being having to be root...

you can download an rpm package here
http://java.thn.htu.se/~toor/rpms/Li...6.5-1.i386.rpm

install the package, then in the run menu (press start button-->run or just alt+F2) type LinNeighborhood and it should work.
