Configuring Samba for KnoppMyth

Samba allows you to access your MythTV box via Windows or Macintosh computers on your network. It is already configured to share the /myth directory, but is not set to start on boot. Therefore, all you actually need to do to begin using samba is to start it up. Open an Xterm window, su to root, and start the daemon:

su

/etc/init.d/samba start

However, if you want to avoid doing this each time you restart your MythTV box, do the following to set samba to start up automatically (as su):

update-rc.d samba defaults
