10.3: Potential Windows server browsing fix
Authored by: feelphree on Nov 20, '03 05:56:05PM
It wasn't exactly clear in the hint, but you have to be logged in as su for the smbcontrol nmbd force-election command to work. Otherwise you'll get an error like:

ERROR: Failed to initialise messages database

It took me three tries to realize this... : )

Great hint, I have been having problems with this since I upgraded a week ago. Thanks!
