Description Trond Danielsen 2008-02-06 02:31:51 EST
Description of problem:
There are a number of issues with the current version of nautilus-share which
makes it hard to get up and running for ordinary users:

1. Samba is missing as a Requirement in the spec file. Nautilus-share does not
work without samba installed and running.

2. Manual configuration according to the instructions found on the
Nautilus-share website and in the INSTALL document included in the package is
required. The INSTALL document is not the place that I would go looking for this
kind of information, and I am certain that my mother would not do that either if
she tried nautilus-share :-). Perhaps a nautilus-share-smb.conf file could be
included in the package which contained the necessary configuration for Samba? 

3. Nautilus-share does not work without punshing a hole in the fw (I use the
default fw settings). Although this is not a major problem, there is no
indicator that this is the actual problem.

All in all, I think the level of manual interaction is fairly high given the
target group of this program. I would recommend adding a README.fedora file
which describe these issues.

[[ 1. Samba is missing as a Requirement in the spec file. Nautilus-share does not

Not a problem at all.

[[ 2. Manual configuration according to the instructions found on the

GUI for Samba configuration should support usershares but it doesn't. Not mine
problem. See bug 427413.

How come this is not a problem? Am I wrong when I say that nautilus-share does
not work without samba installed? If that is so, then I will not bother you
anymore, but if I am correct then I do not see why you do not wish to update the
spec file.
