    system-config-samba missing fc25

    Does anyone know where to find the package system-config-samba ?

    Or some alternative ?

    Is there a reason it was dropped form the repo's ? So that I have to edit the config files, I assume using vi or emacs ......

    thanks in advance

    For F24, it is in the Fedora repo.

    Re: system-config-samba missing fc25

    system-config-samba appeared to be in build system koji

    I managed to download an rpm package for fc25 from there

    Re: system-config-samba missing fc25

    Take a look at this from the F25 Docs.

    https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US...nfiguring.html

    Looks like the GUI samba config is only available on "X" if you are running the default "Wayland" on F25 if probably doesn't pull in the configuration tool.

    Re: system-config-samba missing fc25

    Well, system-config-samba has been orphaned and no longer developed (was dropped from F25, not in the repo). It is entirely possible the reason it was orphaned is the issues with running it on Wayland. Nils may not have wished to make the major changed it required to fix it.

    I believe the one in koji is there due to an automatic rebuild when one of the python dependencies for it was rebuilt.

    Oh.. Your link above points to the F12 docs on system-config-samba

    Re: system-config-samba missing fc25

    I run XFCE using the GDM logon with wayland. I downloaded the system-config-samba from the koji repo and it was useable. It came to some surprise that all home directories were configured as shared...

    At least now I know that Fedora does not support samba for simple setups at home . . .

    Would there be any chance that Fedora honors a request to provide a config tool for siple home setups ?

    Thanks

    You can always submit a feature request. Whether or not there is manpower for it, I have no idea. You can submit feature requests at bugzilla.redhat.com

    Huh!! , thought I got there from F25 install docs, must have picked it up from a google...

    Guess it still pays to read the actual link produced. Yet another example of why people get confused trying to ask the " WEB " a question.

    Re: system-config-samba missing fc25

    Hi everyone. My two cents.

    on Fedora 25 I do as followed and worked for me (not sure if point 1 and 2 are necessary for everyone):

    1) sudo dnf install python27
    2) sudo dnf install python36
    3) sudo dnf install samba
    4) sudo dnf install dbus-python pygtk2-libglade python-slip python-slip-dbus

    downloaded the package from here:

    https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/...buildID=783693

    and then, in the folder where you placed the downloaded file:

    sudo rpm -i system-config-samba-1.2.100-6.fc25.noarch.rpm

    running this last command can return you dependencies errors. In this case simply run this command:

    sudo dnf install <name of the missing dependency>

    when all the dependencies are installed the rpm command should work properly and after this you will find the system-config-samba in your programs, also in wayland.

    good luck

    Daniele

    Re: system-config-samba missing fc25

    rpmfind.net still works awesomely for most of the hard to find stuff, however I see the fc25 are missing.

    you can actually install: system-config-samba-1.2.100-5.fc24.noarch.html on an fc25 box I think.

    Code:
    [root@whitebox ~]# yum install ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/fedora-secondary/releases/24/Everything/aarch64/os/Packages/s/system-config-samba-1.2.100-5.fc24.noarch.rpm

    Re: system-config-samba missing fc25

    Hi,

    actually I tried to download via browser and install the package for fedora 24 and it didn't work properly:

    Code:
    [43]09:21:10-dricciardi@dricclinux:~$ sudo yum install ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/fedora-secon...c24.noarch.rpm
    Redirecting to '/usr/bin/dnf install ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/fedora-secon...c24.noarch.rpm' (see 'man yum2dnf')
    
    Last metadata expiration check: 1:10:37 ago on Tue Mar  7 08:11:55 2017.
    Curl error (28): Timeout was reached for ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/fedora-secon...c24.noarch.rpm [Connection timed out after 120002 milliseconds]

    seems the ftp is down.

    thanks anyway for the hint, i'm quite newbie on Fedora so my apologies if the possible solution provided was not the right or best one.

    Daniele

    Re: system-config-samba missing fc25

    I am upgrading to fc30 today and I noticed that one of the removed dependencies was system-config-samba noarch 1.2.100-5.fc24. Perhaps it can be installed after the upgrade, I will let you know. Otherwise, maybe the source rpm can be hacked up and made to work? Anyone else have experience here?
