    Samba


    I am not sure what is wrong, but i can't even get samba to start. I am running redhat 7.1. I know you have to go to /etc/rc.d/init.d/smaba start. How can I make sure it is installed? When i went to install it off the cd, it says it is already installed. Thanks.

    Then what happens when you run /etc/rc.d/init.d/samba start?

    No such file or directory. There is no samba in the dir init.d.

    Oh yeah, right... It's really /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb, not samba. Hey, don't go around confusing me like that! =)
    By the way, instead of running it the long way like that, you can also run it with "service smb start".

    its ok, I understood what you meant. but thats not the problem, there isn't a file called samba or smb. Which means samba isn't installed correct? If so, then how come when i went to install is from the cd, it said error, already installed?

    I've got no idea. Try installing with -U instead of -i.

    lets go out on a limb here

    rpm -qa | grep samba

    (should find any samba related package)

    Quiet brain, or I\'ll stab you with a Q-tip.
