Problems installing Samba -- is it me?
I'm more or less giving up for now. I have a laptop running RH 7.2 that had been used as a server for a special project that's now over. Now I wanted to use it as a more general-purpose server, so I tried to install Samba on it so it could interface with Windows PCs on my network.
I have several different copies of RH 7.2 (one from Red Hat, others that were included in Linux books I bought). They all have different Samba RPMs, none of which will load on my system. They all get errors due to unmatched dependencies -- all different.
My question is, am I doing something dumb? Or is it that Linux with its many independently-developed ancillary subsystems is just not really ready for someone who wants to use it and not play with it?
