Upgrade to Samba35 (Blue Ring)

This are the steps i've done. Feel free to edit this page and make it better! I used some of shogyn's earlier pages.

Install Optware

See this page http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/optware

Install updated samba version

Get the latest versions:

ipkg-opt update

Upgrade existing installed software to latest version:

ipkg-opt upgrade

Install nessacery library:

ipkg-opt install libiconv

install samba35:

ipkg-opt install samba35

—> ignore the CUPS message, CUPS is only needed for printing

Now configure the mybook to use the updated version of samba

Make a backup of /etc/init.d/network_servers.sh:

cp /etc/init.d/network_servers.sh /etc/init.d/network_servers.sh.bak

Open /etc/init.d/network_servers.sh and find the following row:
$SCRIPTS_PATH/samba.sh start
Comment it out with a #

vi /etc/init.d/network_servers.sh

type <i> for insert
type <#> in front of the line "$SCRIPTS_PATH/samba.sh start"
type <esc> <:> <w> <q> to write the file to disk

Now the original Samba will not start anymore

Copy the original samba config file to the location of the new sambaversion:

cp /etc/smb.conf /opt/etc/samba/smb.conf

open the smb.conf

vi /opt/etc/samba/smb.conf

comment out the dummy headers and write the file:

type <i> for insert
type <#> to comment out the dummy header
type <esc> <:> <w> <q> to write the file to disk

The dummy headers now look like this:



Backup /etc/inetd.conf:

cp /etc/inetd.conf /etc/inetd.conf.bak

Open /etc/inetd.conf and comment out the following line:

netbios-ssn stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/samba/sbin/smbd smbd -s/etc/smb.conf -l/var/log -d0

vi /etc/inetd.conf

type <i> for insert
type <#> in front of the line "netbios-ssn stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/samba/sbin/smbd smbd -s/etc/smb.conf -l/var/log -d0"
type <esc> <:> <w> <q> to write the file to disk

go to /usr/local and change the name of the samba dir:

cd /usr/local
mv samba samba.bak

Update library cache
type ldconfig to ensure all libraries are known


To be sure the users are kown with a samba35 password
add new sambausers:

/opt/bin/smbpasswd -a <username>

then reboot
