I have executed yum samba samba-client. The samba folder is absent in etc/ Yet the system says it's installed. Any ideas? EDIT: I downloaded ( client and all ) and now I have created a share, started and enabled smb and nmb. I have configured my smb.config file but still refuses to appear in network in windows. ps diabled SElinux for now just to see if I can get it to connect.

Are you sure you're looking for samba-client? It does not contain any files in /etc/. Please look at the output of rpmls samba-client. Maybe you're looking for samba server instead? Please edit the description of your question to provide more information.

In order to install a package with yum, you should run sudo yum install <package name> .

hello, even worse...the absence of samba-client creates an Errno 256 in the formal Fedora20 install.... "error populating packages/samba-client from anaconda mirror..." This release has not been properly tested, i am afraid.

kind regards,

This isn't an answer, or even a clear question. Please use the comment field if you think you have the same issue as the original poster, or if not, look for other questions and start a new one if you can't find anything relevant.
