nmbd - NetBIOS Name Broadcast for Samba server

Everything in the title, binary allows your TV to be "seen" in the network when using Samba server.
Elementary but unexistent until then...

Usage:
  • Extract nmbd from archive to /mnt/opt/privateer/usr/sbin and set its permissions:

    Code: Select all

    chmod +x /mnt/opt/privateer/usr/sbin/nmbd
  • Edit your /mnt/etc/samba/smb.conf and uncomment these lines (=remove # at the beginning of each):

    Code: Select all

    # workgroup = SAMYGO
    # netbios name = Samsung-TV
    # server string = Some Server
    Change at least workgroup to your own which is surely not named "SAMYGO". :)
  • Edit your samba server script (likely /mnt/etc/init.d/06_05_samba-server.init) and add nmbd command there just below "smbd blah..." line:

    Code: Select all

    [...]
    	smbd -s $SYSROOT/etc/samba/smb.conf --lockdir=/dtv --piddir=/dtv --private-dir=/dtv
    	nmbd
    	;;
    [...]
  • Reboot TV, check in your network neighbourhood if you can see it.
Should work on all series I guess, D/E/F/H tested, B/C still to be.
