Cockpit file-sharing update is now part of F36. Some information about the current state:
a newer version is
It is not part of the default installation set but has to get installed
[…]# dnf install cockpit-file-sharing
It can’t get installed via cockpit interface, at least if logged in via non-root
After a reload you get a new menu entry „File Sharing“
Maybe we a currently missing localisation support. In my German installation the menu
entry is in English as well as the error messages.
Probably we should contact the translation team to include the module. Maybe we have some
capacity ourself? I could do the German part, hopefully eseyman French, someone else?
Based on a default installation, when you try to use is you get the error message:
- Samba is not installed. Please install
- Failed to load NFS services. Is NFS installed or enabled?
Either we need some additional documentation, or maybe we should include those steps as
dependencies or in the installation script?
I didn’t inspect the matter any further but would leave it to jwhimple, cooltshirtguy, and
xtify21 as discussed in our IRC meeting.
