LiSA Daemon


I posted this to the networking forum, but I though somebody here might also be able to help me.

I have two Slackware workstations, each running 10.2 with the 2.6.10 kernel provided in testing. The systems share a local area network. They are on the 192.168.0.n subnet.

One of the workstations has my music and I want to mount the volume from the other workstation.

I can use SSH to connect to the other workstation. It is also configured as a samba server. I can connect in this fashion, but I cannot seem to connect using Juk or Amarok without crashing the apps.

I thought that perhaps I should mount the other volume using LiSA. I've configured it using the KDE control center. It asks me to start the daemon, which is where I get lost.

I cannot find the daemon on my computer in the normal places. The documentation I've found shows it in a couple of different places, but on mine the only one I can discover is under KDE which turns out to be a little graphics demo.

Can someone maybe give me an idea of a couple things to try? Even just a pointer to the right documentation would be most welcome.

Thx in advance,

You need to enter the following in /etc/rc.d/rc.local

if [ -x /opt/kde/bin/lisa ]; then
echo "Starting LISa"

After entering that and then start Control Center
select Internet & Network
select Local Network Browsing
enter your stuff under Windows shares if you do that
under LISa Daemon go with the defaults in the guided setup.

Good Luck

Thx guzzi,

I will try that when I get home. I found that binary and thought it was something else. Thx for pointing me in the right direction!

Will post my results here tonight.

Kind regards,

Lisa is ok but found it's performance lacking too much. Sometimes it will find shares, sometimes it won't find jack.

I use smb4k now and it rocks. It's fast and finds everything plus you can mount and unmount shares right from in it(it just creates a smb4k directory in your home dir and mounts shares there).

Thank-you to both who took the time to respond to my question.

I was able to enable the LiSA daemon as noted here. Browsing network shares now.

Having used the SMB4K tool before, I downloaded that source and built it, and it too has helped me out.

Thx for the kind advice.
