Hey,

i am running slackware 9.1 and wine 20040408 and i am trying to install visual basic 6.0 Enterprise Edition. I have looked in the wine application db and there is a listing for it, however, it give no information about how to actually get it running. Anyways, i searched around on the internet and came up with nothing. Does anybody here know how to do it? Or even some good web sites giving brod instructions on how to get a setup.exe running. Thanks for any help in advance.

Thanks for the link Robert83, i think that i might use this program.

The reason that i have

prefered master
local master

like the way that they are, is because we have a domain server that needs to be the master otherwise people can't login to the network.

New update, it kinda worked for a few days, now nobody can browse the workgroup computers. I shut samba down and it fixed it right away, so i know that the problem is to do with the smb.conf file. Would i have to add anything to my domain server for samba to work right? The domain/workgroup that is in my smb.conf file is the correct one, so that's why i am wondering if the problem really isn't with samba, but witht the domain server. Here i'll post my smb.conf file again:

CODE
[global]

       workgroup = CANDO
       security = SHARE
       log file = /var/log/samba.log
       log level = 2
       max log size = 50
       prefered master = no
       os level = 255
       wins support = yes
       read only = no
       encrypt passwords = yes
       domain master = no

       hide unreadable = yes

       hosts allow = 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 127.0.0.1

       hosts deny = ALL

       invalid users = root @wheel @nobody


[homes]
       comment = Home Directories
       browseable = yes
       writable = yes
       valid users = %S
       read only = no
       create mode = 0755
       directory mode = 0755
[cando]

       path = /cando
       comment = Cando File Server
       create mode = 0755
       directory mode = 0755
       writable = yes
       guest ok = yes
       read only = no


Thanks for the help that you guys have givn to me so far.

yeah, i know that i can mount the drives...then again, i guess that i could just run a script at startup that mounts them automagically. I guess that's what i get for "posting before i think".

that seemed to work...sort of wink.gif It works quick and fast with smaller to medium files, but since i am a bit of a nut for having things working just perfect, i tryed sending over a bigger file. The file was about 27.3MB. It lost it's conenction after about half way though. However, this is not a big deal since most files that we will be sending to the box are around the 10-15MB range or smaller. Anyways, it seems to be working just fine now, for those smaller files i was talking about. I am going to try and put a beefer ethernet card in and see if that helps because the one we have in there right now is on the cheaper side. Thanks for everyones help.

i've never used those ones myself, but i don't see why you couldn't. You might end up having to install from source though.

Update on the error message:

"The specified network name is no longer available."

This makes me think that the problem isn't with samba, but with the network. I asked a question a few posts back:

QUOTE
would it have any difference on preformance if the samba box was behind a switch or infront of it?


i am begining to think that mabye that's the problem...however, i have been knowen to be wrong. The thing is, it works sometimes. I changed a few things in the conf file, but i don't think that my changes have made any difference. Here's the new conf file:

CODE
[global]

       workgroup = CANDO
       security = SHARE
       log file = /var/log/samba.log
       log level = 2
       max log size = 50
       prefered master = no
       os level = 255
       wins support = yes
       read only = no

       #Reduce the amount of time that samba scans for timeouts.
       change notify timeout = 300

       #Open files with no conections get closed after 15 mins.
       deadtime = 15

       domain master = no

       hide unreadable = yes

       hosts allow = 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 127.0.0.1

       hosts deny = ALL

       invalid users = root @wheel

       logon drive = p:

[homes]
       comment = Home Directories
       browseable = yes
       writable = yes
       valid users = %S
       read only = no
       create mode = 0755
       directory mode = 0755
[cando]

       path = /cando
       comment = Cando File Server
       create mode = 0755
       directory mode = 0755
       writable = yes
       guest ok = yes
       read only = no


It looks to me like it's droping the connection. Does anybody have any ideas what would cause this? i am going to change the amount of time that samba waits to time out and see if that has any effect. Thanks for all the help that i have been given so far and for the help that i hope to receive in the future.

the dos fdisk should reconnize it as a non windows partition. Unless you want to save your data, this should be fine, all you got to do is go to delete a non-dos partition, and then delete some or all of the partitions that you want. then create new windows (that's what i am asuming that you want to do) partitions and then exit out of fdisk and format them.

Heh, biggrin.gif

well since i am an avid slackware user, i recommend that. It all depends, really on what you want to do with the box...when i first started out i found slackware very easy to use.

lest0039: There is really no reason to use zip slack, because of what i was talking about before. Every new install of slackware that i have done, on a mutiplutude of different hardware sets has configured the ethernet card with no trouble at all.

to quote myself about slackware 9.1:

QUOTE
Or you can do a floppy install. The only problem with doing the floppy install, is that there is only two packages that are still small enough to fit on a floppy. However, these two packages are the ones that you really need. Package A, which is the base file system, which includes your command prompt and a few basic communications programs. The other one package "N", is all the networking stuff, which would allow you to ftp and get any other software that you want...but once again, it'll be all command prompt until you download and install the gui.


Anyways, as you can probally tell, i am a avid slackware user...in my opinion, once you go slack you don't come back!

i am sure there's a way to mount the install disk over a network from a windows box...just share the drive...that should work, if it doesn't i am sure the net has some info on the subject, just google for it.

as far as creating another partition and installing from there...i don't see why it wouldn't work. If you make a partition a little bit bigger than the iso file. Linux should beable to mount the iso on the partition. The easyest way to find out, it to try it. Let us know how it goes.

Hey,

i would recommend Open BSD, for one simple reason. With BSD you can make a bootable floppy, then install from the internet. It's actually really slick. The only problem that you would have with BSD is that it's kinda alittle command line intensive until you get your gui up and running. So for that simple reason i would actually recommend Slackware 9.1, you can install from somthing called zipslack, it installs right onto your dos file system, and i think it only takes somthing like 100MB for the "base" file system, anything after that ofcourse will eat up more space. Or you can do a floppy install. The only problem with doing the floppy install, is that there is only two packages that are still small enough to fit on a floppy. However, these two packages are the ones that you really need. Package A, which is the base file system, which includes your command prompt and a few basic communications programs. The other one package "N", is all the networking stuff, which would allow you to ftp and get any other software that you want...but once again, it'll be all command prompt until you download and install the gui. Another option is Peanut Linux. The download is only 340mb, and that's including a gui. however, it won't fit on a floppy. Ofcourse you could download any of these flavors of linux and do a network install like lest0039 suggested. here's a link on how to do a network install for slackware:

Slackware Network Install - this artical is a little outdated, but just replace Slackware 3.5 for Slackware 9.1

Anyways, i am sure if you google for "Network Install <insert flavor here>" that you'll find more articals like the one that i listed above.

Good Luck!
