I want to use GIT and directory should be on a network drive (mounted with
smb://). Because the software I'm using only supports the
file:// protocol I need some kind of mapping the network share as a local drive on Mac OS X 10.9. How can that be managed?
You need to understand how mounting works. In short what you want is to:
- Mount your
smb://drive on a certain location.
- Use your
file://command as you always do.
When you use 'Connect to Server' - ⌘K, your drive should be mounted somewhere in
/Volumes/. So now you can use
For normal use, like this, a mounted network filesystems can be treated just like a 'local' file system. There is no difference in use.
How to mount network drives automatically is another story and can be found on SO, for example https://superuser.com/a/367730/246895
