Recalbox on external drive, how to make kodi share (samba) the external drive?



  • I am on 4.0.1 version of recalbox, installed on RPi 3.
    I settled the option to use an external drive, were my roms and media files.
    Kodi can access the external drive, but I need to share the contents of the external drive over samba.
    Is it possible? How do I do it?



  • I just added one seciton on /etc/samba/smb.conf and rename both on file:
    [recalbox]
    comment = Recalbox user data
    path = /recalbox/share
    writeable = yes
    guest ok = yes
    create mask = 0644
    directory mask = 0755
    force user = root
    veto files = /._*/.DS_Store/
    delete veto files = yes

    [kodi]
    comment = Kodi server
    path = /var/recalboxfs/
    writeable = yes
    guest ok = yes
    create mask = 0644
    directory mask = 0755
    force user = root
    veto files = /._*/.DS_Store/
    delete veto files = yes

    Now it's appears on recalbox's IP.
