Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 327251
samba client 18.104.22.168.fc9
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:18 EST
Description of problem:
Pre1 3.2 on F8 devl
connection to winodws xp share pushing works fine but pulling from share gets
popup message invaild parm for smb// (press skip, cancel, close)
Pressing skip continues, files seem to be ok. (This occurred more often with
picture (jpeg, png, bmp) than data (rpm's iso's)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Most all ways when pulling from share.
Steps to Reproduce:
open Places, click on Share Name, enter user and password,
select from share, copy, select /home/Dlownload, paste.
F8 will ship with 3.0.26a please try with that package.
22.214.171.124pre1 has been currently retired while waiting on licensing evaluation.
It still has a bug and that is what you s/b concerned about.
Samba-3.2 and 4.0 will be used by almost all Linux's and it doesn't matter one
bit about Licensing. Especially nit picking on a gpl version.
There are a half billion Windows uses and only a few million Fedora users.
It is impossible to exsit without samba.
I will use 3.2.0 in F8 weather Fedora likes it or not.
So tell the nit pickers to get real.
This is samba, not nvidia.
Just to make it clear:
I *do* care about this bug, and I will test for it, that's why it is just
DEFERRED. The right place for this bug, right now, is upstream though.
