The tinycore based samba server is up and running for two weeks now, and is working well.
I've tested a few different combinations of tinycore and samba and have come up with the following stable recipie.
Tinycore v 3.8.4
Samba v 3.4.5
I'm storing my tce folder on a small partition I created as our community centre does not have enough usb flash drives to spare.
Bit of forum searching uncovered the tce-setdrive command, which allowed me to set the tce folder without the gui
I am going on a trip with the church in April to a hospital they are setting up in the solomon islands and am considering installing tinycore+samba as a file server for them. Does anyone know if there is a tc extension that sends regular system status via email ? I've found nagios with google, and it looks ok, if there is nothing already available, i'll make it into an extension. They have internet via satellite at the site.
