Samba


I'm trying to install Samba to share files and print services. I installed samba rpm about 2 wks ago, today I trid to install swat. It gave me an error . I then uninstalled the package, when I rebooted my machine and tried to reinstall the package I got an error.

samb -common is needed to install samba server and client.

What does this mean? How do I install samba-common.

i believe the package name is samba-common. Try searching on http://www.rpmfind.net, or if have apt-get installed just run apt-get install samba

If you're using Red-Hat you might try up2date -i samba-common .

Actually, I just found out what it is. When I tried to install the package I got an error Samba-common already installed version 2.2.5. Where is it? How do I get Swat to recognize it.

Try this "rpm -q --filesbypkg samba", it will list all files installed for samba.

Can't answer your question about swat though Never used it.

It's saying that no packages are installed for samba.

Are you using rpm to install?

If your using a Red-Hat distribution I would try running up2date -i samba. This should pull all dependencies, including commons.

I'm not familiar with that particular error message, sorry

Mike
