I recently updated my Core/hybrid to LMCE 8.10,... and I am having a problem accessing a USB attached external storage drive via Ubuntu Jaunty PCs attached (via Ethernet) to the internal network... I used to have one (my eeePC Box 202) working fairly well as a disk-less boot MD, but I just don't seem to get a proper video configuration with 8.10 that I had with 7.10.
I need 8.10's functionality as an SIS controller for z-wave, because I am getting a MCV Vera to sit as the external router (a second router will act as a wireless access point to the internal network). I need the MCV Vera, since it is just about the only way to safely & currently access external z-wave control through their free secure portal.
My hardware consists of:
Core/Hybrid --> Dell Inspirion 530 with (currently non-working) Haupaugue HVR-1600 (I have a second once I get #1 working), internal 320GB HD, 4 GB RAM, 2 Ethernet NICs (as recommended), Intel GMA950 graphics chipset.
MDs (I want them to act as external PCs accessing media through Samba or NFS);
1- eeePC Box 202 attached to a multimedia system through optical sound out and a Sanyo 42" LCD through DVI to VGA adapter... (runs Jaunty,... very WELL, I might add)
2- Dell Studio Hybrid attached to a 36" Sanyo LCD through DVI to HDMI adapter, sound is conventional stereo audio. (also runs Jaunty, not as well as the eeeBox, despite the same graphics chips)
3- Desktop PC in my office --> (another) Dell Inspirion 530 with nVidia graphics and 2 GB RAM, widescreen DVI 19" monitor.
4- 2 Neuros OSDs connected to TVs through their composite output. (capable of accessing SMB shares, if I could get that configured, but couldn't act as a disk-less MD)
Orbiters (or potential Orbiters)
1- Pepperpad 3 (if I could get it working 100% again)
2- 2 Archos 604 Wifis
3- Asus eeePC netbook
4- Viliv S5 MID (if I can get the touch screen, wifi and bluetooth working in Jaunty).
5- 2 older Dell laptops
6- 2 Palms (Palm TX and a Palm T3).
1- MCV Vera & z-wave devices to control lights and Garage doors, initially, then sky's the limit
2- Nokia N900 as phone/Orbiter (busted my N800,...Damn! I loved that machine!)
3- Maybe a temporary Haupaugue card that's a little older until I figure out HVR-1600 support.
So,... How does one configure Samba and/or NFS shares to be able to show up on the Jaunty machines, internal web based Orbiters, and firmware controlled devices like the Neuros OSDs?
Sometimes I can see the directories on the Core,... sometimes I get errors trying to connect... However DHCP works fine...
