General Help & Advice / Re: Networking with Windows PC's
« on: April 20, 2011, 11:49:31 am »
I am still having problems with networking (why do PCs have so many issues).

The windows PCs can not see the Linux PC again.  How do you configure SAMBA from a Terminal window?

When I click on my Samba link I get a warning message " some lines couldn't be understood while reading the configuration file  /etc/samba/smb.conf. These maybe unknown configuration directives for samba plugins but could also be  configuration errors"

 here is the read out -

Thanks for the information. Have installed SAMBA and sheared folders, changed WORKGROUP to that of my network.   The Linux PC can now be seen by the Windows PCs (all well and good) when I try to access the Linux system it asks for a username and password.

I am typing in the username that I log in with and the system email (this is rejected) is there anyway to prevent the request for a password?

Hi,  The Linux PC can see the windows based PCs on the network and also access the sheared folders, documents, mp3 files.

However, the Windows based PCs do not see the Linux machine and so can not share the sheared folders.

If the Putty package is part of the packages available on my Linux PC then I would expect it should be installed on Linux.

No mention of installing anything on the Windows PCs.

Dear All,

Have read about a program called putty is this the best option for getting my windows based PCs to see Linux?

It is listed in my Peppermint Linux as a package so should be easy to install.

Dose anyone know if it is easy to use and set up.

Thanks in advance.

Internet Connectivity / PCMCIA wireless card
« on: April 15, 2011, 05:18:25 pm »
Dear All,

I am up and running with Peppermint-One and connection via cable is fine.

However I also need to connect via wi-fi home network.  How do I get the system to see my PCMCIA Card and then download the drivers for the PEAK card.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for all your help on this subject.

Peppermint seems to be a good option for me, getting to grips with it after only 30 mins.

Passed memory test OK but disk test failed with same report -
(initramfs) mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesystem,squashfs failed: input/output error
Can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem,squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs

I tried the CD on a P4 laptop with the same problem so would seem to be a problem with the burning or the image file.

However I have managed to load a Linux  version called Peppermint-One so will take a look at this.

So it is strange that there is no problem with this version yet I have had loading problems with 8 other iso image files.  I can not believe that all these files are corrupt or failed to burn even at 4x speed.

Will let you know how I get on with Peppermint-One.

Will also try putting one of the image files on to a USB stick.

Thanks for your help so far.

Have also tried what you sad with Ubuntu 10.10 and it failed with the following report:

BusyBox v1.15.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.15.3-lubuntu5) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

(initramfs) mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesystem,squashfs failed: input/output error
Can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem,squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs

Open to suggestions.

Hi, Thanks for your reply, Laptop is an IBM Thinkpad T22 P3 with 500MB of Ram (max for this machine).

It came with Windows 98 but has been running windows XP Home for 3years now with no problems.

I have installed SliTaz on the computer on 2 partitions. This is the only operating system on the computer as windows XP has been completely removed and a Linux file system installed.

Here is a list of the distros I have tried:
slitaz-3.0.iso (installed and working)

Some get to an installation or multi-choice screen

Others start to install Linux

All find some reason to stop the installation, I have downloaded each one from different down load mirrors and used two different CD burning programs.

All to no avail, have not given up but if I am having this much trouble then people who want it working out of the box could be discouraged.

Well I had heard good things about Linux, so thought I would try it out using my oldest Computer an IBM P3 laptop with 500MB of Ram ( Runs XP home OK).

So Far I am not impressed, I have downloaded 12 different versions of Linux and only found one that works on my computer (SliTaz V.3.0) and this release is the pits.  It is not even possible to change the screen resolution from the desk-top and it looks like I will have problems when I want to use my PEAK PCMCIA Wi-fi card.

If Linux wants to take on Windows (Please Please Please) it needs to get much more focused on the end user and make installation easy for those who do not even know what a Command Line Prompt is.

I build my own PC's so I have some understanding of how a computer works.  If you think you know a version of Linux that will get me hooked then please let me know.  :'(
