Description of problem:
smb://machine will reveal the list of shares but try to open any of these shares
like smb://machine/share will never bring up any content.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1) Type lan://localhost/ to Konqueror URL bar;
2) Open (lan://localhost/machine) any of the machines (if You have them at all);
3) Open lan://localhost/machine/smb;
4) As You will be directed to smb://machine and be shown a list of shares on
this machine, open any share (smb://machine/share);
Actual Results: Blank window and nothing more.
Expected Results: Contents of this share.
If to try to enter a share which is under password, it will ask for username and
password but result is the same.
Under GNOME there is no problem with smb://machine/share, but KDE has it.
Somehow on one machine what was upgraded to RedHat 8.0 (not installed from
scratch), smb://machine/share is working fine.
On my machine under KDE I don't get as far as lan:/ or lan://localhost/.
It returns could not connect to localhost and thats the end of it.
It also doesn't work if I try to connect to a machine name directly, like
Gnome seems to work a little bit better, but I also have the problems noted in
other bug reports under it.
The only way that really works without problem is to mount it in a terminal
window, and then browse to the directory I mounted it to. That works fine, in
fact, it seems to connect a lot faster than a windows machine does.
May I suggest an additional feature when this is fixed? Add a lan:/ menu item
or button to the file explorers, or add an icon to the desktop instead of
typing lan:/ smb:// and make it really easy to use.
No changes with KDE 3.1-0.9 from Phoebe.
With Phoebe (8.0.93) is even worse - I can see only the machine names, but no shares
What is going on?
Is there a howto about this issue?
Did you look the following URL?
KDE Team says that they fixed this undesired behaviour of lanbrowser...
If this will fix something then only "...I can see only the machine names, but
no shares anymore!", but I see no way how this may fix "smb://machine will
reveal the list of shares but try to open any of these shares like
smb://machine/share will never bring up any content."
When and what version of KDE from RedHat will have this fix?
it's fixed in kdebase-3.1-13, which was released as errata last time
