[SOLVED] cant see files on samba

There was an old topic about not seeing files on shares on a mac that could be seen on a windows pc.

The problem is that linux maps a linux attrib to a SYSTEM attribute on samba.

 

My problem was that one pc could see the file (settings show hidden/system) and my htpc couldnt see the files (hide hidden/system).

 

The fix:

 

Create a file called smb-extra.conf in the flash/config directory containing

 

[global]

map hidden = No

map system = No

 

and all normality is restored ;)
