MediaHarmony is a Samba VFS module which allows multiple editing clients to interoperate using low-cost commodity storage for media files. The two main features are:
rpm -i samba-3.0.23d-6.src.rpm
MediaHarmony depends on header files generated during compilation of Samba,
so start building Samba from source. You can optionally stop this process
with control-c after proto.h is created to save time.
rpmbuild -bc /usr/src/packages/SPECS/samba.spec
Now that Samba's source is ready you can build MediaHarmony from the ingex source code:
The resulting *.so files need to be installed in Samba's vfs directory:
sudo cp *.so /usr/lib/samba/vfs/
A SUSE 10.2 rpm is available here but may not work on other SUSE versions since Samba's internal APIs change occasionally.
Edit /etc/samba/smb.conf as described in the next section, then restart Samba.
