Ok.... here go's.. Samba works , i can see my share from a winblows laptop.. But under Linux .. Gnome3 / systemd - Browse Network.. Nothing will show up ..

Also if i path it with smb:// or by share name to one of my other puters that has gentoo, it wont find anything .. Yer of course the winblows box finds them.

Hhhhhmmm... ?

EDIT: Update... I dont think this is the problem , but when the system loads it loads nmdb.service before smbd.service, so because nmbd loads first it cant find smbd .. so i have to start nmbd again manually and then the shares work.. How do i change it to make smdb.service run first ?

This will not fix my browse network issue i'm having, but it will stop me from having to manually load nmdb.service after boot ...

Thanks in Advance for your help ..
