I installed ARCH X86 with Gnome 3 on my Dell 2120 netbook and everything is working except for a the samba server.
I installed the Samba & smbclient packages using pacman and made a simple smb.conf file in /etc/samba/smb.conf.
[global] workgroup = Workgroup server string = Samba Server security = user [Videos] comment = Videos path = /home/dennis/Videos valid users = dennis public = no writable = yes printable = no
I configured and started the server using the below commands.
smbpasswd -a dennis systemctl enable smbd.service systemctl enable nmbd.service systemctl enable samba.service systemctl start smbd.service systemctl start nmbd.service systemctl start samba.service
The smdb and nmdb service seems to be running fine if i check the status but the samba service is listed as failed if i check it.
I cannot see any network devices or the machines own share when i try to scan via the file managers "network" section.
I cannot find anything in the WIKI or on this forum/google that i might have missed, i am really tearing my hair out in dispare over this :-(
Any suggestions ?
I tried this https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=165121 and it did not work for me.

noboddy ? i must admit i was expecting more action on this forum :-)
Have you run "testparm" to see if all is OK. ??
I don't even have a "samba" service running and have no troubles.

After another 2 hour grind to trouble shoot this i decided to stop all 3 services and load them again in order nmbd, smbd, samba.
And now it is working just fine, think the other 2 services where not loaded correctly either then... anyways it working.
