Description josé renato castro milanez 2006-10-15 08:53:56 UTC
This is the bug, guys:

First I made a Mandriva Linux 2007 Powerpack installation on a two 40gb SCSI harddisks. The first disk have the '/' directory and the second disk have the '/home'. The '/home' dir is being mounted by the '/etc/fstab' at each boot.

I installed the samba server (3.0.23b) and share each one of user directories (/home/joe, /home/joseph, etc..) instead of sharing only the '/home' dir.

So, the samba bug occurs when I exit from the X-Window to the console. Each time I exit from the X-Window, the '/home' directory is unmounted. With this, when I try to access the share directory with a Windows XP Pro machine, the Windows machine hangs up!!! And HANGS UP! It´s impossible to close the process, and the only two options is to restart via reset button of shutdown with the powerbutton.

I found at the '/var/log/' a daemon log, and inside it samba is writing a message saying that the directory '/home/joe' (for example) cannot be accessed. And this message repeats a lot of times for each second until I reset or shutdown the Windows XP Pro machine.

My question is: why samba cannot say to Windows XP Pro that the share directory cannot be access????

Please guys, take a look! I´ll try to find the bug with the X-Window, but the bug with samba will still
