troubleshooting icaros desktop SMB (samba – windows shares) crash “exec housekeeper”
The problem :
After a fresh installation of icaros 2.1.0, 2.1.1, 2.1.2 or 2.1.3 and even icaros 2.2 (until 2.2.4), you try to mount a SMB (samba) share mount parameters on your ahci/sata/ata drive, and you get a crash.
[Note : it can also come from the fact it is a guest only samba share : you must try to configure an AROS samba share with username/password], please have a look to this article.
Here is what you get :
Exec housekeeper program failed recoverable error
The solution :
You must get the L:smb-handler from icaros 2.0.1.
You can’t get it directly on the iso or the dvd.
It’s not a perfect work around as it is not possible to just “use” the smb share. You must “save” your configuration in order to get icaros to connect to your server.
Here is an article on configuring ubuntu samba share between icaros and ubuntu : http://amiga.thewetmachine.net/?p=755
