  1. samba client

    hi,
    i'm novice in linux os.
    i installed mandriva one spring 2007. i need samba client in order to
    connect to windows environments. when i try to mount samba points the os
    starts to install samba client but then says it was impossible to install.
    (probably it doesn't find the client?)
    could you help me please?

    Had you uopdated using Easy Urpmi?
    If not do a Google Search for it and follow the instructions.
    Once iot completes (it can take time), try the install again
    from a konsole as root.

    $ su (enter your root password)
    # urpmi samba
    That will return a list of what is now accessible. Here is my response for
    example:

    [root@localhost alan]# urpmi samba
    To satisfy dependencies, the following packages are going to be installed:
    libcap1-1.10-5mdk.i586
    mount-cifs-3.0.23d-2.1mdv2007.0.i586
    samba-client-3.0.23d-2.1mdv2007.0.i586
    samba-common-3.0.23d-2.1mdv2007.0.i586
    samba-server-3.0.23d-2.1mdv2007.0.i586
    samba-swat-3.0.23d-2.1mdv2007.0.i586
    Proceed with the installation of the 6 packages? (37 MB) (Y/n)
    [root@localhost alan]#

    It looks as though you're running out of space on your / partition. If
    you're using KDE you can confirm this by running kdiskfree. (Menu -
    System - Monitoring).

    The solution will depend on;

    1. Why you're running out of space (How big are /var/log and /tmp?), and
    2. The status of other partitions on your drive(s) (Do you have any other
    available space?).
