@Bryan: KDE smb://
by Kurt Pfeifle on Tue 4th May 2004 21:24 UTC

@Bryan:

[i] --> KDE smb support hasn't worked for at least the last 2 years. <--[i]

KDE's kio_slave for SMB accesses (like browsing the network with Konqueror and smb://) heavily depends on the stability and version of your Samba installation. libsmbclient.so is coming from the Samba client packages and it is known to be very problematic since a long time. People from the Samba Team are surely the first to concede this. To improve that is an ongoing effort.

KDE may still have a lot of glitches and bugs -- but this one is not one originating in that camp....


@Paul:

Thanks a lot for this review. I think you gave us some more food for thoughts. Your observations, and the way you put them to us, are highly appreciated.

Cheers,
Kurt
