Description Florian Effenberger 2005-10-03 06:23:13 UTC
When I click a configuration option in SWAT in order to get the help files, the
link is


However, now the correct one seem to be

(manpages left out). Because of that, when invoking the help, you receive a 404.

Are you using a prebuilt package?  Or did you compile and run make install ?
Comment 2 Florian Effenberger 2005-10-04 09:17:28 UTC
Compiled it myself from the 3.0.20a sources.
Comment 3 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2005-10-04 09:23:39 UTC
This is actually a bug in the docs/ directory of 3.0.20a.
My fault.  simply `mv docs/manpages-3 docs/manpages` and 
rerun `make install`.  The other smb.conf.5.html you are seeing 
is from a previous install.  You might want to remove the original
installed swat directory before re-running `make install`
Comment 4 Florian Effenberger 2005-10-04 10:06:10 UTC
This does not seem to be the culprit:

myhost:~/samba-3.0.20a# mv docs/manpages-3 docs/manpages
mv: cannot stat `docs/manpages-3': No such file or directory
myhost:~/samba-3.0.20a# ls docs/

Comment 5 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2005-10-04 10:25:47 UTC
No.  That's it.  I just gave you the wrong path.

$ mv docs/htmldocs/manpages-3 docs/htmldocs/manpages
