this ystem is up2date as of 10/31/04. I used the above menu to load up
"services" app to make sure smb and windbind are running in level 3 ,
4, and 5 (not sure if level 4 should as I don't know much about that
I made sure my sons machine is running and made sure samba is running
on it, (suse 9.1) it can not see my machine and when I start konqueror
in my machine and type smb:// his machines name it comes back with it
can not find it.
I also got a message when I clicked on local networks saying I needed
lisa, so I opened a terminal and started lisa, now I see a bunch of
local 127.x.x.x and see my box FED777 but do not see my son's.
I'm not sure If I've done something to break it(probably), since I've
spent my time learnig to properly compile the kernel so I could then
compile the raid card driver's and read and write to it(ntfs was a
disappointment can't write to it)
last I've done a lot of reading from the google pages and man samba and
have learned a lot even how to mount and dismount NTFS volumes in
Windows, something totally unknown to me until today ;) but have not
succeeded in fixing samba. I need to share my printer for the wife and
all suggestions are deeply appreciated and my appologies for the long
and winding story ;)
can you manually mount it in a terminal?
try smbmount //servername/sharename /mnt/onyourfedorabox username
it should come back with a password to access the share.
at least this will tell you if samba itself is working.
