This relates also to another thread I started, namely "where are my
system configuration tools." This problem comes after a "clean install"
of F27. My old system-config-samba applet is gone--dnf can't find it to
install. And I don't see any launcher for NetworkManager or whatever I'm
supposed to use.
Right now, the Fedora system can't see any Windows computer on my
network--can't find it even with a direct address input (and I wouldn't
know how to send one.) And the Windows boxes can't see the Fedora
system, either--I type "\\[hostname]" and get a message saying "Windows
can't access [that host]."
I've already edited the files /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts to reflect my
choice of hostname. I replaced "localdomain" with "home," in keeping
with the Windows domain.
How can I check that the services smb, nmb, and winbind are even running?
