Slackware 12 upgrade – Samba

One of the challenges on any Linux upgrade is getting your Samba server to work again. I use Samba to network with my Windows computers. I have to keep a couple Windows machines around, just for quality control testing on website development, and for creating flash.

After the Slackware 12 upgrade, Samba didn’t work. I copied over my old smb.conf, but no dice.

Finally got around to doing some research today. Of course, it was simple. Just needed to re-add myself as an smb user:

smbpasswd -a username
