I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the correct area, but I have a Samsung BD-P3600 bluray disc player that can access network shares for media playing. I have been having problems getting it to work with Samba and I came across this post on the Samba technical mailing list: http://lists.samba.org/archive/samba-technical/2009-December/068300.html

The specific patch that this person, Giovanni Bajo, created was removed from the list but can be found here: http://old.nabble.com/NetShareEnum:-disable-sanity-check-for-better-compatibility-with-Windows-td26562058.html

I tried to search for bugs related to this in both the Samba bug list and the Gentoo bug list but came up empty. I applied this patch to Samba server version 3.4.3-r1 and I can now access my Samba share on the Samsung player. However, today I see there's an update for Samba-server to version 3.4.4-r1. I couldn't confirm if this patch was ever submitted upstream and would like to know if I should open a bug on the Gentoo Bugzilla.

Thanks for your help.

So if it works for you don`t update samba... Set /etc/portage/package.mask for your current version and let it live...
