The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 3861
Cannot install Kodak ML500 NT driver
Last modified: 2012-01-09 10:41:03 UTC
On a Windows 2000 client, when installing the attached driver for OS 'Windows NT4 or 2000' to the samba share using the APW, got an error saying 'The printer driver you selected is either not compitable with yout current version of Windows ... contact yout administrator for help'.
In the samba log, there is an error:
[2006/06/26 17:29:20, 0] printing/nt_printing.c:move_driver_to_download_area(1811)
move_driver_to_download_area: Unable to rename [W32X86/ekml500.dat] to [W32X86/2/ekml500.DAT]
Looking at the ekml500.DAT (a 0 byte file) on the print server and found that the files is moved correctly to the '/2' subdir. However, there is a '__SKIP_XXX' empty dir hanging in the W32X86 dir.
If the 'SKIP' dir is manually removed and the driver installation is performed again, this driver can be succesfully installed the 2nd time.

This is probably fixed with a newer Samba version. If you still see the error. Please open a new bug with 'debug level = 10' logfiles of the new Samba version 3.5 or 3.6. Thanks!
