I want to be able to copy media files stored on my "headless" LE server across several USB disks mounted on that server - directly on the server, and NOT by passing them through my laptop across SMB or SFTP. So I installed Docker on LE and created Dolphin container app which I can access remotely through the browser on my laptop.
So far so good, but if I browse LE file system remotely as "root" with Dolphin (installed as a docker container app on my LE server) my <media> folder is empty as opposed to when I browse <sftp://libreelec.local/media> with Thunar from my laptop.
BTW, when I use Thunar on my laptop to browse LE media folders, it pops up "login" screen, and I choose "Log in Anonymously" - it works just fine.
Is it that I cannot see my <media> on USB disks mounted with fstab on LE machine because my Dolphin "root" doesn't have the permissions to see SMB folders on LE server?
I've installed Dolphin on docker with the following commands:
docker run -d --name="Dolphin" \
-e USER_ID="0" \
-e GROUP_ID="0" \
-e WIDTH="1280" -e HEIGHT="720" \
-v /storage/.kodi/userdata/Container/dolphin/config:/config:rw \
-v /storage/.kodi/userdata/Container/dolphin/mount/point:/mnt:rw \
-e TZ=Australia/Sydney \
-p 8050:8080 \
-p 3389:3389 \
I suspect I need to run Dolphin docker app logging in as root / libreelec - instead of having USER_ID and GROUP_ID set to 0 / 0 (as -e above) - to see the hidden ".kodi / .local" folders ("downloads" and "media") ?? But how?
And what is the actual file structure (PATH) on Kodi which is hidden under the metalinks <sftp://libreelec.local/media> and <smb://libreelec.local/> ??
PS - I've tried running MC with PuTTy but it crashes and locks up when I copy/paste or move large files across different USB disks
