I’m attempting to use a Windows Active Directory for user authentication in an OpenSUSE Linux environment. The configuration tools in OpenSUSE’s Yast take care of just about everything, or try to at least. But I found one instance where a default samba setting just doesn’t make the cut.
Most guides telling you how to mount smb CIFS/Samba shares on Linux to mount on Windows 7 will point you to adjust settings in Administrative Tools -> Local Policies. Windows 7 Home Premium does not have the Local Policies MMC snap-in. Therefore you cannot use that tool to change the NTLMv2 security settings.
If you’re looking for a generic way to find the user’s “My Documents” folder in windows, os.environ variables won’t work because they’ change in Windows from one version to another. This method works on Windows XP and Windows 7 which is what I need:
There’s a folder you can create on your desktop that allows you to see every possible thing you can do to your system, all in a single window under one big tree.
I launch some applications with extensions that are configured to open with other programs that are not launched as administrator. I have no option to open the program as administrator, instead I have to launch the launching program as administrator.
This goes for just about all versions of windows. The file you are looking for is %systemroot%system32\drivers\etc\hosts.
The structure for graphics drivers changed completely from Windows XP To Vista. So forget your video card. You might have the latest and greatest money pit of a video card, but it still won’t run Battlefield 3.
