Can it access windows smb shares?  The current version can't even do that.

I'm not sure what you mean by that and if your smb shares are different than mine. But with my old setup running 9.04 I just shared the folder in windows the usual way I would on the network. then on my ubuntu box went to the \\mycomputername location and it was right there... There is a package group you add in the install programs thing for windows file sharing...

Are you setting it up another way?? My linux server that had smb windows shares was easily found also in 9.04

Maybe I'm still running 9.10 instead of 10.whatever...I upgraded from 9.4 to 9.10 I think and it broke the ability to access smb shares (most importantly my AppleTime Capsule).

Sal are you just trying to share files, or printers and such?

Just files.  I'll have to look up the details and see if it's working now when I get some time.

Yay! I'm excited for the new Ubuntu also! I love that they have everything completely free and the computer doesn't restart every time it updates, unlike windows!

I love when windows randomly decides to restart on you to install updates... so much user choice :sarcasm:

Haha, this happened in biometry class last week--you'd hear people swearing all of a sudden because they were in the middle of typing R code and the computer would just restart.

Haha, that's lame... stupid Microsoft.  It would be nice if we got to decide when to restart (or even better not have to restart at all).  It happened to me the other day, all the more reason to switch:

I'm running 9.10--it was the .10 upgrade that broke SMB sharing.  LUCKILY it looks like it's been fixed, because I made things work today, no sweat!

It was an official bug with the release (I wasn't the only one), so I assume one of the recent updates fixed it.

I doubt I'll upgrade straight away since the server (running 9.10 server) probably won't benefit too much and I'd rather have some free time before I have to fix a bunch of problems with the server caused byt he upgrade.
