i am trying to install samba on fedora 6.though the package is installed and i have modified smb.conf file after that i added smbuser,,the problem is when i try to restart smb service through command "/etc/init.d/smb restart" it gives me error no such file or directly. i have checked services in init.d ,,but smb service is not present there,what should i do now.any help will be highly appreciated
Please do not put statements like this in your post. We are not being paid for this service and we will reply to you when we can. Statements like yours are extremely irritating and won't get you replies any quicker.
For what it's worth, on my system there is no "smb" in /etc/init.d but there is /etc/init.d/samba
when you use the following command what do you in the output
rpm -q samba
if you get the samba with the version then its installed
Applying this command gives me "samba is not installed" but when i use rpm -qa|grep samba ,,it gives me version.if u r saying samba is not installed then what steps should i take to install it. i am using samba-common 3.0 and i have installed it through rpm -ivh samba-common and it gives me 100% success.i dont know what to do.
