Thread: Commands in Terminal

  1. #1

    Default Commands in Terminal

    Hello everyone,

    I've got a few problems/questions.
    For my school project I have to configure a Samba server. I chose to do this in OpenSUSE 12.2 but in school we use 10.3.
    Now, everything I learned (I'm talking about bash commands) seem to be working a bit different in 12.2.

    For example, I just installed the Samba software and I want to check if the service is loaded so I do this with 'chkconfig'. No problems there except 'smbfs' isn't in the list. Only 'smb' and 'swat'.
    Next thing, I want to start the service smb by typing 'rcsmb start' and it says 'redirecting to systemctl'. What does this mean? Can't I see the output like in 10.3?

    Also, can anyone link me a good tutorial on Samba configuration? i've found some good ones but the more I have, the more I can learn

    Thanks

    yes, there are big differences between 10.3 and 12.2, kinda like when
    one compares WinXP and Win8 . .

    Indeed. You should install 10.3 at home too, if possible inside vmware
    or virtual box, so that you can practice the same way as in school.
    There are more differences that I can remember.

    That, or convince your school that they are using obsolete material :-p

    No. It uses systemd instead of systemv, it is very different.
