Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 132370
"Connect to server" to windows share hangs forever
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:49 EST
If I do
"smbmount '//HAVOC/Music Drive' '/mnt/music'"
it prompts for a password, I just press enter, then I can use the share.
The share is browseable from another Windows system.
If I open Network in nautilus, or manually enter Server=HAVOC,
Share=Music Drive, then it hangs forever with the hourglass cursor.
There's no indication of what it's doing.
smbtree seems to SIGABRT on startup.
[hp@localhost ~]$ rpm -q nautilus
[hp@localhost ~]$ rpm -q samba-client
[hp@localhost ~]$ rpm -q gnome-vfs2
Connect to share opens the share when you're done, so its likely that
the problem is just the same you get when you open network.
What server is HAVOC? samba, windows? what version?
Does nautilus keep on going, appart from that window?
Server is Windows XP. Nautilus does keep going, it just has the busy
cursor in that window.
Can you get full backtraces (with debuginfo) for all threads of
I'll try, sure.
As best I can tell, gnome-vfs-daemon and nautilus backtraces are both
just sitting in the main loop. The trace is just poll(),
bonobo_main(), etc. Nothing of interest.
Aha, I got "connect to server" to work; "service iptables stop" was
necessary. Is that something we could fix in the default firewall?
"Network" still seems to hang forever though.
Are we still fucking up smb with the default firewall? We should
probably fix that then.
This is basically a duplicate of #133478, no?
Not really. hp claims "Network" still doesn't work with firewall disabled.
It might be a duplicate though. Can you try disabling the firewall and
Wontfixing this. The important bug is the smb vs firewall one.
