For some strange reason, Samba and Avahi don't startup properly on boot.


I always have to run ./etc/rc.d/rc.samba restart for my Samba shares to be listed on smbtree. When I do, I get a message saying that nmbd wasn't running... the same applies to the Avahi daemons. Even though I add their startup on rc.local, I must restart them manually for me to browse SSH shares on my Arch machine and so on.

Anyone having similar issues?

I had a problem with samba starting on my wireless boxes that use networkmanager.
I fixed it by editing /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf like so...

changed:
plugins=keyfile
dhcp=dhcpcd
to:
#plugins=keyfile
#dhcp=dhcpcd

I'm not sure if this was the right way to do it but I could not find any other solution..

Did you issue as root:
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.samba
