For some reason Samba just stopped working on my netbook and I can't find where it is in order to restart it.

I think this happened right after some recent updates...

/etc/init.d/samba does not exist...

Has this been placed in a different location on the Netbook edition...?

How can one go about finding that out...?

Thank you

thanks that pointed me in the right direction... sudo service smbd restart – Serhiy Sep 3 '10 at 21:32

Are you sure samba is still installed? Just in case, you may want to install it (sudo apt-get install samba) which should also update it if it isn't.

For a list, check out this site.

I should also mention that in the Netbook edition, little more than the UI/UX changes. Everything else is exactly the same.

sudo apt-get install kept telling me it's already installed... and all sites had it listed as /samba and not /smbd I think that resulted in my confusion... thank you for the help though... – Serhiy Sep 3 '10 at 21:33
