The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 1906
APW based driver upload broken
Last modified: 2005-02-07 07:57:25 UTC
Having configured samba for serving printer drivers to XP clients, i'm using the
properties dialog from an XP client (as the printer admin user) to install the
needed driver in the samba print$ share.
This doesn't work however;
Windows errors out with :
Unable to install Lexmark Optra R Series PS, Windows 2000 or XP, Intel
driver. Operation could not be completed.
Samba log the following message in the client log :
[2004/10/11 07:46:48, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection(800)
client_pc (192.168.1.12) couldn't find service
Searching for the problem on google yields quite a few hits but no real solution
(that i have come across). Searching om samba bugzilla yields nothing, so here
we are :-)
i had a problem submitting this bug, so there is a mor updated duplicate bug in
#1907 - check that one out instead! Sorry for the inconvenience!
originally reported against 3.0aph24. Bugzilla spring cleaning.
Removing old alpha versions.
