yeah i think i know want your problem is. i ran into this a while ago when i made a debian server. all you gotta do is sudo chmod 777 /home/public/data...... with the ..... representing all the sub-folders in the data file. if that doesnt work see if you can ping the computers from each other. if you cant then theres still a firewall problem. post your results when your done.

Alrighty kids i've figured out the cause and now i have the cure.
apparently linux mce's firewall blocks port 139. now samba uses port 139 fairly exclusively ( you can change it but thats alot of hassle) so if your having network trouble go into the firewall settings from the pluto admin page and add port 139 to allowed ports list. problem solved. if you concerned about security you can restricted the port to access from certain IPs. so there you ahve it. took me all day to figure out a 30 second fix.

so im having some serious samba trouble. the linux mce machine appears on the windows network from a windows machine but the message "The Server service has not started" comes up and i cant pint the linux machine from the doze. now on the other side when i enter into the network neighborhood not even the workgroup comes up but i can ping the doze machine from the linux. at this point i have a mega headache.
here is a dump of my smb.conf file maybe you guys can see something im missing?

        workgroup = WIREDHOME

        security = SHARE
        passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
        passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n .
        username map = /etc/samba/usermap.txt
        log level = 2
        syslog = 0
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 1000
        smb ports = 139
        dns proxy = No
        invalid users = root

        comment = public files
        path = /home/public/data
        read only = No
        create mask = 0777
        directory mask = 0777
        guest ok = Yes

        comment = shared home files
        path = /home
        force user = root
        force group = root
        read only = No
        guest ok = Yes

        comment = alexander's private files
        path = /home/user_1
        read only = No
        create mask = 0770
        directory mask = 0770

Users / Playlists not showing in LMCE
« on: April 07, 2007, 02:17:50 am »
I tried making a playlist of songs using pluto from another pc but the playlist does not appear in the list. any one got any info on that?

i tried that method before. the first two times it didnt work but the third try finally stuck not sure what happened but hey im not complaining not its just a matter of getting ui2 to work

im on my third attempt at installing linux mce with every attempt i keep getting the same message then the installer hangs. ### package pluto-orbiter failed (tmp/tmp.NLvud11451) does any one know the reason for this problem and subsequent hang and perhaps a fix or work arround? thanks in advance.
