Do you ever get the feeling that things are starting to go over your head - 
well I am getting that feeling now.  Anyhow in for a penny, in for a pound.

Downloaded from cvs using

cvs -d :pserver:cvs at co -r SAMBA_2_2 samba

after loging on of course. is that right?

Configure - make - make install. over my 2.2.3 version

restarted samba and win2k same thing happens share violation.

A couple of interesting points
1.  I can rename a html file when that is being previewed. I can even rename 
that in the folder when the file is open.
2.  Still cannot rename the mpg file though and cannot rename the same file 
when it is open and playing - same error message share violation

Should i be able to rename the mpg file by right clicking on the folder 
share\filename  when it is actually playing in windows media player?

3.  Pie chart in samba share is empty Capacity is 27.9  Used = 0  Free = 27.9 
In fact capacity = 30 Gig and about 3 is used.  It gets that wrong in all 
samba shares.

Samba 2.2.4pre Win2k upgrade from win98?

Hope that helps

David Mulcahy

I do hope i am not wasting your time and just doing something incredibly 
stupid.  I will set up a test with another win2k box just to check tomorrow.
