Description of problem:
I'm using samba to connect from linux to a Windows XP shared folder.
I can create new files in the folder from Linux, and I can copy (overwrite) existing files. However, whenever I open a file using the text editor (gedit), it opens in read-only mode.
I checked the permissions on the files, and all the files have 744 permissions (owner-write only). First, I should be the owner, since I created the file from the same NT login that I'm using the read the file from. And second, why would it let me overwrite the file (in order to achieve my edits, I have to copy the file to linux desktop, change, and then copy it back) if it's supposed to be read-only? The properties dialog won't let me change permissions on the file because permissions denied.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to XP share from linux
2. create a new file
3. open the file
Actual Results: File is read-only
Expected Results: write has write permisions.
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
