Apps not starting


Here's what I have

Fedora running on a PIV 2.53 with 1 gig ram, with 2 users, myself and root/KDE gui

Sometimes it refuses to start some of the applicatiosn, like the samba app in system>servers

Only thing I see is a blinkning busy signal for about a minute, which then turns into a normal cursor again but not starting the app

I had this before on my old PIII 300 and thought it was due to lack of memory and/or cpu capacity, but the current machin is up to specs

Doesn't matter which user I am logged in always same result. Happens under Gnome as well ass KDE.

Effectively it means I can not use the ap again unless I re-install

You might be able to get a meaningful error message by starting the program from the command line.

"how do I start Samba-server configurator from the commandline"

Use your KDE menu editor to look at the menu entry for Samba-server configurator and find out the name of the program that runs when you click on that menu entry. Then enter that program name as a command at the command prompt.

If you cannot find the program name that way then take take a look at the files in the rpm package that installs Samba-server configurator to find the program name. Something like:
rpm -ql samba-server | less

If you need a list of what rpms you have installed then do:
rpm -qa | sort | less
