http://forums.opensuse.org – openSUSE 11.2 Fresh install from a zeroed out hard drive; All updates applied. Boot level 3. SAMBA set to run at levels 3 and 5. I am not able to see shares or even my SUSE machine from other computers unless I first startx and go into the YaST Control Center and go through the motions of toggling the enabled/disabled status of each of my shares. Upon viewing the smb.conf file, nothing has changed. Why can I not see (and access) shares if I do not use YaST for the SAMBA settings first even though smb is running at run level 3? What is YaST doing that simply starting the smb daemon isn't? Firewall is disabled... Thanks (Distributions)
