Nmblookup command missing

Post by Don M. » 16 Jun 2010, 11:04

In older versions of sysresccd (eg 1.3.1) I could use the nmblookup command to find the IP address of a windows computer on my home network. Then I could use that IP address in the mount command to mount a windows share. In version 1.5.5, this no longer works, the shell reports the command nmblookup is not found. Is there any other way of doing this?

The samba package has been removed in sysresccd-1.5 since the samba server is not used by most people. A minimal version has been reintroduced in sysresccd-1.5.7-beta1.
