OK - Re-booted Laptop and PCLOS-QUAD (2009.2)
All shared folders are now mountable from both machines BUT
there are no files (listed) when I open any of those folders on the ACER (Laptop)??
but I can access all folders and their files being shared from PCLOS-QUAD ?
Same response from the other machines Linux & MS
MS boxes inform me that I probably do not have permission?
On the laptop my user id is 500 whereas on 2009 it's 501 (just in case that has something to do with it?)
Regarding the permissions thingy - afraid the 700 701 500 501 666 etc gives me even greater head aches
What's the bash to view the folder/file attributes showing permissions in dec format? - would be handy for me
I can understand it easier when I see it as -rwx------ (dir/file user group world)
Just about all folders on the 2009 are rwx (I gather that's a 700?) and the majority of files are rw- (600?) some files are rwx.
If that's anything like useful
I'm trying ....
4 = read (r)
2 = write (w)
1 = execute (x)
0 = no permission (-)
To get the permission bits you want, you add up the numbers accordingly. For example, the rwx permissions would be 4+2+1=7, rx would be 4+1=5, and rw would be 4+2=6. Because you set separate permissions for the owner, group, and others, you'll need a three-digit number representing the permissions of all these groups.
Can you tell that I have no hair left to pull now
and I have just rec'd a replacement GPU via courier so I might just give this a break for a bit (couple of tablets for the head)
I'll be back --- thanks.
