An error occurred while loading smb:/

I make quite a lot of use of smbclient from the command line so I was very pleased to see this article. However, when I tried out his first suggestion of using konqueror to join my network neighbourhood I got this message when I typed smb:/ into the Location field. I've googled this error message but not really got anything useful. I am using Konqueror 3.1.1 on KDE 3.1.5 and Kernel 2.2.20.

"An error occured while loading smb:/:
Could not start process Unable to create io-slave:
klauncher said: Error loading 'kio_smb'."

solved on my system by ensuring that (installed to /usr/local/samba/lib/ by make install of samba from source) was symlinked from /usr/lib/

ldd of was how I figured it out - there was a dynamic link dependency reporting "Not found".
Needed a symlink as btw.



weber's picture was not found in my case.

# locate
# ldd /usr/lib/kde3/|grep 'not f' => not found
# yum -y install libsmbclient

Check that you have kio_smb io-slave. There was reported an error with samba 3.0.8, that kdebase would not compile samba support. The same happens if you do not have samba on your system.

Could it be that you need another slash (/) at the end of the line? eg: smb://

I'd suggest that you would upgrade your KDE setup, it's quite old.

It's possible, that your samba libraries (libsmb) are not compatible with kio_smb -ioslave.

With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
