Description Robert Scheck 2004-01-28 05:18:16 EST
Description of problem, how reproducible & steps to reproduce:
I mapped a Samba share at my Windows computer to a drive. Then I
tried to checkout a CVS module with WinCVS or TortoiseCVS to the 
mapped network drive.

The Samba server was one time Fedora Core 1 and another time Fedora 
Rawhide - so in both times Samba version >= 3.0.0.

But the CVS checkout didn't work - it simply died with: 

--- snipp ---
cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot make directory <cvs-module>: No such file or directory
--- snapp ---

I searched around Google and diverse mailing lists - no 
results...some people seems to have the same problem, but still no
result or solution.

The only match I found a few minutes ago:

So I tried a downgrade to the Samba version of Red Hat Linux 9.
Now, all works fine - the problem IS Samba 3.x.x :-(

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
>= samba-3.0.0 (ALL 3.x.x!)

Actual results:
The problem seems to be a bug introduced with Samba 3.0.0beta2 (!!),
as Andreas wrote it at the mailing list (see link above).

Expected results:
Fix that annoying bug immediately, please! Thank you very much :-)

Additional info:
The CVS server, where the checkout was done from cvs-1.11.5-3
(Fedora Core 1 CVS).

Oh sorry, I forgot the Windows versions, I used for that tests and
where the problem was reproducible:

Windows 9x, NT, 2000 and XP (always with the latest available updates)
Comment 2 Gerald Carter 2004-01-28 12:25:07 EST
This is fixed in 3.0.1 according to duplicate bugs reports
on the samba ml.
Comment 3 Jay Fenlason 2004-02-24 17:12:11 EST
Can you please try the 3.0.2a-1 RPMS from Raw Hide and confirm whether
or not they fix the problem?
Comment 4 Robert Scheck 2004-03-15 12:48:10 EST
The latest Samba RPM from Fedora Development seems to work :-)
