The samba-module/bin/4.7/greyhole-x86_64.so file doesn't exist on my system that I can find. Where should it be located?

Not sure as I am away and can’t look at my machine.

Might try:

Code: Select all

sudo dnf reinstall amahi-Greyhole
Watch the output and check Greyhole log file for errors.

I think I got it. The problem was that greyhole-samba47.so doesn't get installed in /usr/lib64/greyhole for some reason. When greyhole starts and tries to initialize a samba link it fails. Samba then creates a symlink for greyhole-samba47.so but it doesn't point anywhere because the target file doesn't exist. To try and fix this I went to the Greyhole site and downloaded greyhole-x86_64.so from the greyhole- 0.10.15.tar.gz archive. I copied this file to /usr/lib64/greyhole and renamed it to greyhole-samba47.so. Then I was able to recreate the symlink.

Code: Select all

ln -s /usr/lib64/greyhole/greyhole-samba47.so /usr/lib64/samba/vfs/greyhole.so
Restart greyhole

Code: Select all

systemctl restart amahi-greyhole
I was then able to access the greyhole shares from a windows client. Seems to be working.

Great job on finding the issue.

We will repackage Greyhole so that file is included.

Presume we can mark this as resolved.
