connect box.net NAS drive to Linux (kubuntu 12.04)

I'm using kubuntu 12.04. (which is of now 2 January 2011 is still in beta)

I'm going to mount the box.net NAS, network attached storage, to my Linux desktop; kubuntu 12.04.


My Linux desktop accessing the 'mounted' box.net NAS drive.




First I installed a 'webdav' library..

terry@terry-HP:~$ sudo apt-get install davfs2

Unpacking davfs2 (from .../davfs2_1.4.6-1ubuntu3_amd64.deb) ...

Secondly, I made a directory to mount, put, all the box.net files.
terry@terry-HP:~$ mkdir box.net

Thirdly, mount the box.net storage to a newly created box.net...(the folder may be any name, not just box.net)


terry@terry-HP:~$ sudo mount -t davfs https://www.box.net/dav box.net/

only able to pull files from box.net.. not able to push files to box.net using the mounted 'webdav' box.net
folder, 'box.net' from above.

Look in /etc/davfs2/davfs2.conf for the following line:

# use_locks 1

Uncomment that and make the 1 a 0 such as:

use_locks 0


Then you will be able to write to your box.net account.

Interpreters
The Amiga had a hardware emulator which transformed instruction to instruction to a dedicated x86 hardware interpreter in the Amiga could run Microsoft DOS spreadsheet programs in the Amiga OS.

MS-DOS on Amiga via Sidecar or Bridgeboard[edit]
MS-DOS compatibility was a major issue during the early years of the Amiga's lifespan in order to promote the machine as a serious business machine. In order to run the MS-DOS operating system, Commodore released the Sidecar for the Amiga 1000, basically a 8088 board in a closed case that connected to the side of the Amiga. Clever programming (a library named Janus, after the two-faced Roman god of doorways) made it possible to run PC software in an Amiga window without use of emulation. At the introduction of the Sidecar the crowd was stunned to see the MS-DOS version of Microsoft Flight Simulator running at full speed in an Amiga window on the Workbench.

Later the Sidecar was implemented on an expansion card named "Bridgebo…
