TOPIC: Samba & smb4k ?

Samba & smb4k ? 4 years 11 months ago #563

Hello!
I'm trying to get samba working and have added smb4k(browsing) app as with our other linux distros under a Windows 2003 Server domain. I have Toorox spec'd as a static IP with hostname and domain set in hosts smb.conf thru an editor, as I could not get the Network and Systems Settings GUI screens to enable. Related, we can see the Network Settings screen, but it is disabled/gray'd out and is missing the NIC card info and Domain Name System tab' Host name even though it's specified in smb.conf.

-ref active smb.conf Global section: (same as other linux box except they have winbind)
[global]
workgroup = i]Win03 domain name[/i
security = user
netbios name = toorox
hosts allow = 192.168.1. 127.
unix charset = ISO8859-1
; valid chars = [ ... ] # (errors if used)
keepalive = 30
os level = 2
kernel oplocks = no
domain master = no
socket options = SO_KEEPALIVE TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
map to guest = Bad User
wins support = no
time server = yes
encrypt passwords = false
log level = 1
syslog = 0
restrict anonymous = no
preferred master = no
; max protocol = NT # (errors if used)
ldap ssl = No
server signing = Auto

Notes: We have no WINS, only have DNS. Yes, we have completely exited and restarted smb4k after changes to smb.conf

Please advise on disabled Network Settings screens within System Configuration GUI. i.e.: Is it broke? Also, what is the "valid chars" parameter for?

Thanks.

Hello,

first click on Systemconfig -> Filesharing to start samba.
There you can manage your shares (add folders).
You can see your windows shares by starting dolphin (filemanager)
and then click on network -> Samba Shares.

Greetings

Does this answer any of my questions? -Doesn't appear to here.

To my knowledge, this function does not work correctly till now. Maybe with the release of KDE 4.4 and knetworkmanager?
Related, we can see the Network Settings screen, but it is disabled/gray'd out
Execute:
kdesu kcmshell4 kcm_knetworkconfmodule
Also, what is the "valid chars" parameter for?
It's outdated and you can disable it.
hosts allow = 192.168.1. 127.
Remove the space

Okay, we do now also have Toorox_01.2010_32-Bit installed, however...

Attempting command yields CRASH!
i.e. Command: kdesu kcmshell4 kcm_knetworkconfmodule (ENTER)

Then, the "KDE Crash Handler" presents...
"We are sorry. KDE Control Module closed unexpectedly.
You cnan help us improve KDE by reporting theis error.
Note: It is safe to close this dialog if you do not want to report this bug.

Attempting to report the bug steails:

However, when trying to report the bug it also crashes. (Duh!) i.e.:

Can't even save this to file...

Also, trying to read instructions on how to report bugs, error...
"Could not start process Cannot talk to klauncher: Not connected to D-Bus server."


I think we need to set aside Toorox until perhaps yet another major release is provided... :(

When you start it as user:
kcmshell4 kcm_knetworkconfmodule
without any problem?
And what about:
sudo kcmshell4 kcm_knetworkconfmodule

Re: Aw: Re:Samba & smb4k ? 4 years 10 months ago #636

kcmshell4 kcm_knetworkconfmodule
kdeinit4: preparing to launch /usr/lib/libkdeinit4_klauncher.so
kdeinit4: Communication error with launcher. Exiting!

sudo kcmshell4 kcm_knetworkconfmodule
No protocol specified
Kcmshell4: cannot connect to X server :0.0

That's all.

That's strange ...

Please insert and boot the live DVD and execute the same commands from a terminal of KDE.
Same result?

kcmshell4 kcm_knetworkconfmodule
This opened the “Network Settings – KDE Control Module” window, however there is no network interface listed and everything was gray’d out/disabled. i.e.: No apparent way to create a network interface record… Also, all tabs are disabled…

sudo kcmshell4 kcm_knetworkconfmodule
I received a lot of errors like,
“Error: “/var/tmp/kdecache-user” is owned by uid 1000 instead of uid 0”
(More than a dozen of these type errors.)
Then the “Network Settings – KDE Control Module” window, however, although the 2nd-4th tabs were enabled (usable), the 1st tab “Network Interfaces” was still blank and gray’d out/disabled (unusable) with no NIC listed.

Afterward, I then altered smb.conf (as initially posted above) to 'force' it onto my W2003 domain, as the network and Samba screens were not usable.
Then I ran "kcmshell4 kcm_knetworkconfmodule" again to find it crashes with error text:
"kdeinit4: preparing to launch /UNIONFS/usr/lib/libkdeinit4_klauncher.so
kdeinit4: Communication error with launcher. Exiting!
KCrash: Application 'kcmshell4' crashing...
sock_file=/root/.kde4/socket-Toorox/kdeinit4__0
Warning: connect() failed: : Communication refused
KCrash cannot reach kdeinit, launching directly."

RE: This IS the DVD running -not the hard drive.
So, it appears as this (DVD) may be having a permissions problem... (?) and maybe among other issues.

kcm_knetworkconfmodule
Is this the only one, which doesn't work correctly in your Toorox installation?
If yes, then don't worry about it - you can configure your NICs via LAN+WLAN
or execute:
/etc/init.d/Networkmanager start
kdesu nm-applet

Re: Aw: Re: Aw: Re: Aw: Re:Samba & smb4k ? 4 years 10 months ago #668

Yes, well I tried /etc/init.d/NetworkManager start -w/ a capital "M", then kdesu nm-applet...
Error message presented: "** (nm-applet:12168): WARNING **: <WARN> request_name(): Could not acquire the NetworkManagerUserSettings service as it is already taken. Return: 3"
RE: The Network and Samba screens are core screens, and are only the ones we've reported -when will these disabled screens be fixed?
We can't be doing this anymore. At this point, I believe we need to wait for another major release of Toorox -after you have thoroughly tested it...
Thanks.
Bye.
