Why do programs such as BlueFish and system-config-printer-gnome need a module used to provide Microsoft access to a Linux server? I can see for example a hook to allow Microsoft systems to print on a Linux print server, but why is Samba required in order to run system-config-anything except samba itself? And why doe BlueFish, a programming language editor, need samba at all?
Today I am completing the conversion of our file server to CentOS because the disk drives needed to be upgraded. They have been in service for about two (2) years and are now completely full. I ordered two 1.5 TB Seagates and installed CentOS 5.2xx, then transferred all the user login information for Linux and Samba (Windows file sharing) to the new system.
