Description Stanislav Fomin 2013-07-30 13:21:06 MSD
Midnight Commander in ROSA Fresh compiled without Samba support.
It is very unconvinient for power home users (Windows boxes, NASes with samba, etc).

Please, add SMB support to MC.
Comment 1 Stanislav Fomin 2013-07-30 13:59:33 MSD
And yes, I know about some potential security issues, that leed to excluding samba from Debian (and so, Ubuntu).

But. ROSA Fresh is Home Desktop, and these potential issues have zero risks and samba support have +20 of power user experience.

Comment 3 Stanislav Fomin 2013-08-01 17:12:39 MSD
Thanks. Testing. 
See a lot of samba issues (cannot copy a lot of directories, and I can understand why).
Will continue exploring.

Created attachment 1725 [details]

If you select multiple directories, and copy it returns an error. BUT, NOT always. For some reason some of the selected directories normally (without errors) copies of several directories. And some would not.
Comment 5 Aleksandr Kazantcev 2013-08-01 18:37:50 MSD
Code is too old and ugly... Will not work properly with samba4 i think too.
Comment 6 Denis Silakov 2013-08-26 16:03:35 MSD
Note that smb vfs has been enabled in the latest mc builds, in particular in this update which is awaiting WA now - but #2573.
Comment 7 Denis Silakov 2013-09-17 11:57:15 MSD
MC with smbfs support has been published. If you experience problems with it, feel free to file additional bugs or ping upstream.
