Summary: mc - needs to be compiled with --with-samba
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Alpha 4 plus
Priority: P5 - None
1-smbfs vfs support is scheduled for imminent removal from kernel (2.6.18
final?) because smbfs is no longer maintained, supposedly replaced by cifs
2-cifs vfs kernel support for old LANMAN versions in OS/2 and Win9x is broken
and may never be adequately fixed due to security problems fixing it could
impose and/or lack of interest from those with competence to provide the very
3-It was written on the mc(a)gnome.org mailing list that mc cannot merely be user
recompiled with --with-samba due to conflict with SUSE's implementation of
UTF-8 in mc
mc compiled with --with-samba provides native samba vfs access to OS/2 and
Win9x servers. If 10.2 ships with a kernel that lacks smbfs vfs support, 10.2
will be crippled in its ability to network with OS/2 and/or Win9x servers.
Having mc so compiled would provide relief from this problem. Even if release
kernel retains smbfs vfs support, it would be nice to have working smbfs vfs
support in mc.
