Comment 1 Glenn 2008-06-24 23:58:04 EDT
I erased samba-swat with yum and installed from rpm on rpmfind (same version). 
Still not updating smb.conf

from /etc/xinetd.d/swat
service swat
        port            = 901
        socket_type     = stream
        wait            = no
        only_from       =
        user            = root
        server          = /usr/sbin/swat
        log_on_failure  += USERID
        disable         = no

Ok, I see this has been fixed in rc2.

> Can you try samba-3.2.0-1.rc2.16.fc9 from testing ?

I cannot find this version.  All I am able to find is the one for FC10 @

# yum update samba --enablerepo=updates-testing Does NOT get RC2

Can you please tell me where to find samba-3.2.0-1.rc2.16.fc9 that you have
stated fixes this problem?

I can confirm this is fixed in RC2.  Thanks!
