Hi there - apologies for the long-ish mail!

 I recently performed a SuSE online update to my system, and since then
Samba has refused to work properly.  After the update, nmbd produces the
infamous message:

Aug 29 19:26:39 linuxserver nmbd[7208]: [2003/08/29 19:26:39, 0]
Aug 29 19:26:39 linuxserver nmbd[7208]:   find_response_record: response
packet id 10133 received with no matching record.

Even after trawling Google, I don`t really understand what this message
means.  It may also be totally unrelated to the smbd problem I`m

My Linux server (SuSE 8.1, kernel 2.4.19-4GB)`s shares are viewable through
Windows XP Pro`s networking, and files open perfectly.  I can also delete
and rename files.  The problem occurs when I try to create or modify a file;
Samba bombs out with:

Aug 29 20:07:54 linuxserver [7712]: [2003/08/29 20:07:54, 0]
Aug 29 20:07:54 linuxserver smbd[7712]:   PANIC: internal error

The Windows box then responds with an access denied message, depending on
the application modifying the file.

I`m not great with RPM, but managed to remove (I think) all traces of the
previous Samba installation, 2.2.5, and install the SuSE Samba 2.2.8a RPMs
(libsmbclient-2.2.8a-34.i586.rpm, samba-client-2.2.8a-34.i586.rpm,
samba-2.2.8a-34.i586.rpm) - no errors resulted after the install.

My smb.conf file is as follows:

        workgroup = MOONUNIT
        os level = 2
        keep alive = 30
        kernel oplocks = false
        security = user
        time server = Yes
        unix extensions = Yes
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        map to guest = Bad User
        printing = CUPS
        printcap name = CUPS
        wins support = No
        veto files = /*.eml/*.nws/riched20.dll/*.{*}/

comment = Web
path = /opt/jakarta/tomcat/webapps/ROOT
valid users = richard
browseable = yes
read only = no
writeable = yes


The files within this directory are Linux all permissioned
-rwxr--r--    1 richard  users          37 Aug 21 22:49 robots.txt*

I`ve set up smbusers to map
richard = xpdesktop\Richard 

I`m essentially trying to update some web stuff.  I have played with
different locking parameters, but these don`t seem to have helped.

I`d appreciate any help you guys could provide, even if it`s just to call me
an idiot and say I`ve done something stupid!
