Recently I have mounted a 500GB SATA hard disk into a Fedora Core 4 computer. Everything seems OK, the system can detect the hard disk, and I can mount the hard disk to a directory.
However when I try to share out the mounted folder using samba, I cannot mount the shared folder from other computer. It keeps saying no such shared folder or something similar.
After few hours of googling, I finally found the reason. It is caused by the SELinux feature of Fedora Core 4 (or other versions of Fedora). Once I disable the SELinux feature, I can mount the shared folder from other computer without any trouble.
To disable the SELinux feature, use this command:
To disable it permenantly, edit the following file:
/etc/sysconfig/selinux for FC4 and FC6
/etc/selinux/config for FC9
