Samba on Suse 7.2

Samba on Suse 7.2

Post by Pamela Samuel » Tue, 26 Feb 2002 00:09:58

I changed this line in /etc/rc.config in order for samba to start, but
it doesn't seem to start on Suse 7.2 Professional.  Is there something
else I need to do (yes, I rebooted)?

Is the Samba server package installed?  You should be able to find
/usr/sbin/smbd there if it is, and you should also have the
/etc/samba/smb.conf file there.  The package is called "samba.rpm".
Make sure you edit that file using either a text editor or SWAT or
something so that it corresponds to how you want your machine to share
its stuff to LoseXX clients.

Rebooting was not necessary for such a minor change.  "/etc/init.d/smb
start" is all you needed to do.

Do *NOT* run telnetd.  Use sshd instead.

Used to System V ps?  The ps that ships with Linux is the Berkeley ps,
but you can set PS_PERSONALITY to emulate all kinds of different ps's,
including AIX's.

1. SuSe 7.2 makes SuSe 7.1 look like beta software and Mandrake 8 like alpha.

Hey guys I just finished installing SuSe 7.2 personal edition which I
picked up at CompUSA today. I got to say that even though I was a Mandrake
fan I am about to switch loyalties and become a SuSe fan. right now I don't
no where to start but everything about SuSe 7.2 just screams ready for
prime time. Installation was one of the slickest looking Linux  installs I
have every seen. It beats Mandrake hands down and makes windoze look very

SuSe 7.2 is fast and stable and every thing from my Creative Live Drive (
which Mandrake never ever detected ) to my NIC 3COM 3c905-TX card was
detected and worked from the start. I updated via SuSe's online update tool
which handled everything automaticly ( I was to lazy to do it manually )
and flawlessly.  Am happy to say that SuSe has won me over and M$ better
watch it's back because if other distro's start looking and acting like
SuSe then it's going to run into a lot of problems in upcoming years from

P.S. The only flaw I find with SuSe is that they make it very diffuclt find
and download the free version. Now am going to see if I can install this on
an old Packard Bell P5 200 mhz system I got laying around here somewhere.
Oh yeah here are my specs of my current system :

AMD 1.2 ghz cpu

Asus A7M 761 motherboard


64mb DDR-SDRAM LeadTek WinFast Geforce 2 GTS Pro card

Creative Sound Blaster X-Gamer sound card

Creative LiveDrive bay

3COM 3c905-TX NIC

IBM 75GXP  60gb hardrive

Maxtor Quantum FireBall 13.6 XL harddrive
