Set up SMBv1 Server on Linux for OpenPS2Loader.

So OpenPS2Loader has an ability to mount games from a network location, but the thing is no modern OS uses SMBv1 due to the lack of security. On Windows it is easy to enable it but on Linux things are a bit complicated. I will just give you an example smb.conf (located in /etc/samba/smb.conf generally) so you can see how to turn it on. Do mind that the later SMB versions may have removed SMBv1 completely so you may have to downgrade.

    client min protocol = NT1
    server min protocol = NT1
    unix extensions = no
    store dos attributes = no
    wide links = yes
    null passwords = yes
    kernel oplocks = no
    oplocks = no
    obey pam restrictions = yes
    workgroup = WORKGROUP
    lanman auth = yes
    ntlm auth = ntlmv1-permitted
    vfs objects = recycle fruit streams_xattr catia
    read only = no
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=524288
    strict locking = no

    path = /path/to/PS2
    browseable = yes
    public = yes
    available = yes
    keepalive = 0
    aio write size = 0
    aio read size = 0
    large readwrite = yes
    getwd cache = yes
    write cache size = 0
    strict locking = no
    strict sync = no
    strict allocate = no
    read raw = no
    write raw = no
    follow symlinks = yes
Now you can connect to your SMB server without any problems. You may want to use Jayjays daily builds for a more stable connection, that was the case for me.
