Description of problem:
When clicking on network a window opens up with just the windows network icon in
it and it does not show other computers on the network.
Selinux is turned off and so is the firewall.
You can manually connect to known shares by using ctrl+L when in a browsing window
to bring up the location bar and then typing the path to a known share
ie smb://computername/sharename which brings up the password dialogue as
expected and you can successfully connect to the share.
Note I think this is a generic gnome 2.12 problem because a friend of mine is
also seeing the same problem with nautilus 2.12 in SUSE 10.0
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: see description
Expected Results: The ability to browse for shares on computers on the network be it on windows or
changed to fc5test1
chaned again to devel
Problem still in FC5T2 fully updated.
Since this problem exists on a fully updated FC5T2 now reverting this to devel as
quite a lot has changed since the FC5T2 install.
I can confirm this is still an issue in both of my fully rawhide updated fc5test3
I think there was a bug filed about this upstream but I can't find it now.
Alex, any idea on this ?
This is related to how the gnome-vfs smb method handles anonymous logins. I've
commited a fix to gnome cvs and am building a FC5 package.
Fixed in gnome-vfs2-2.13.92-3
