Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 50914
Problems using Konqueror to copy files from SMB server.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:35:29 EDT
Description of Problem:
I am trying to copy a directory of MP3 files from a file server on my
network. Several files will copy but then it stops and the smbclient
process that kde is using to do the work is using 100% cpu while nothing is
getting done. I have to mannually kill the copy window, and kill the
smbclient processes before my system is running OK again.
Almost every time, as long as there are enough files, a few directories
with only one or two file seem to work most of the time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open konqueor to a smb share (smb://fileserver/share/mp3dir)
2. Drag a folder that contains files (I did this with mp3 files) to the
desktop (or any folder).
3. Let it start copying and it will fail eventually.
A few files were copied but not all.
All files in the folder, and sub folders should have been copied to my system.
Tried this connecting to both a windows file server and a redhat 7.1 file
server running a hand compiled samba 2.2
Does the same thing happen if you mount the filesystem using the mount
command and then access it in konqueror by going to the mount point?

As requested, I mount the smb server with an smbmount command. I have seen no
problems when doing this.
Also, after further testing what I'm seeing is that in many situations the
smbclient process that is serving the smb ioslave stays around after I am done
browsing the smb share, or done copying files. When it sticks around it
starts to use 100& CPU. Also, at one point the copy operation was reporting
that it was "stalled" I hit cancel, and cpu usage went to 100% from the

I still have problems using konqueror to browse smb shares. No matther what
version of Redhat I have tried, be it the roswell beta, RH7.3 or RH8.0, smb
browsing does not work well at all with konqueror. Is it just me?
please try kde-3.1.1a or newer, which you find it on ftp.kde.org. It should fix
