The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 4179
Sharing file fails
Last modified: 2006-10-18 01:41:20 UTC
I am sharing a directory from my Mac using the built-in samba 3.0.10. The client is an xbox running xbox media centre (which is running some version of 3 but not sure exactly which)
The problem is the client can see the share, login, view files but cannot load or stream the files from the host.
http://pastebin.ca/207619 is the host log.smbd for a session.
http://pastebin.ca/207638 is from the client log when attempting to play a video file.
I think Samba is having a problem translating between the codepages and UTF-8-MAC? The host smbd.conf has:
unix charset = UTF-8-MAC
display charset = UTF-8-MAC
dos charset = CP1252
and the client (which uses an xml file I guess to feed samba somewhere in the system:
I'm not a developer so if I need to provide any more info please get in touch.
The host is running OS X 10.4.8 on an Intel iMac.
Please contact your Apple support for this problem. Your log file shows a panic and also some routine names (auth_ods.c:opendirectory_auth_user) that the original Samba does not contain. You are using a Version of Samba that Apple modified, so the Samba team can not do much about this bug.
