Description of problem:
I cannot set up my samba server.When I click on System Settings,
Server Settings, Samba The script starts to run and asks for my root
password. After entering my password, it just disaappears and the
little icon at the bottom also closes
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 3 Test 1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. System Setting
2. Server Setting
4. enter password for root
Actual Results: The config window does not open
Expected Results: A window opening allowing samba to be configured
for my home network
I can see my other computers from this one but cannot access this one
from my other computers.
Please try whether other configuration tools from System Settings ->
Server Settings that ask for the root password work or fail.
Changing version to correct one. (test1 -> fc3test1, and some were filed as
test3 accidentally instead; but clearly must be fc3test1 given the date of filing.)
Fedora Core 3 and Fedora Core 4 are no longer supported. If you could retest
this issue on a current release or on the latest development / test version, we
would appreciate that. Otherwise, this bug will be marked as CANTFIX one month
from now. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
I cannot reproduce this. The program "system-config-samba" runs fine in Fedora
Setting status to "CURRENTRELEASE", however if you still experience this problem
after updating to our latest Fedora release and are still interested in Red Hat
tracking the issue, and assisting in troubleshooting the problem, please feel
free to provide the information requested above, and reopen the report.
Thank you in advance.
