Angry Redhat is ticking me off and I think I am going to scrap it for good.


Can't get Samba to recognize my network. Says Samba has to be installed but I have already configured it.

Can't log on to Redhat's Website with auto updater to get updates? Will not except any User names.

Can't find a program to mnt files?

Can't share my directories. Every time I select share directories as a root admin, and after saving settings, when I look back setting go back to original state? Will not accept new settings.

When I install OpenOffice, I have to configure each shortcut for all the applications individually?

Am I to expect more of the same problems the more I learn? I am at the point of scrapping it and never using it again. I do not have these problems with SuSE or Mandrake as I have them installed on other partitions.

Help me I'm sinking.

What exactly is Samba telling you? This is a Samba config prob, RedHat is just a distributor.

If you can log on to RedHat that's most likely cuase the termintated free suport of their RedHat line in favour of commercial support. If you want to use up2date you need to switch to RedHat's open source driven project Fedora .

I don't think I understand that.

The rest of the stuff I don't see as beign RedHat's fault. As I said, they only package the software other people create.

Hope I was of help.

Samba is working fine on my SuSE and my Mandrake OS.

But my Redhat system, I do not even know where to go to accomplish what I want. I can't find a network icon to attempt to log on to my other computer. With SuSE, there is an icon on my desktop called Local Network and I can access my other computer through it. On my Mandrake system, I think I had to use LinNeighbourhood to mount to find and mount my network sharing directories.
On Redhat, there is nothing I can use and I did all that I know with samba. I am stuck.

Well I'd suggest you first attempt to connect to a Windows share via the command line with
Code:
smbclient
And I know for sure one can easily browse the local network via GNOME's 'Network Computers' on the main menu.

Check it out.

thanks pembo, I'll give smbclient a try but not gnome. Hopefully, I get a chance to swim with you and the rest of the Penguins.
