Was wondering if anyone else ran into this. During the last batch or 2 of updates..my samba networking broke.
I do have a clonezilla image from 2 weeks ago. I normally create a new image prior to installing new updates...just in case. I can fall back to it if I need to. Tho, I'd get hit with over 200 or so updates. Under synaptic, most of the updates are priority 3, is it okay to leave some of them behind..or is it better practice to upgrade what shows up? I had an issue with gstreamer and xorg-common from a few updates back..so I have been holding off on those.
Except now..since my LMDE 32/64 box is my file-sharing/print server/2nd workstation. The samba related side, file/print sharing..has been knocked out within the last round or so of updates. My mint helena run laptop can no longer access the network printer and the samba share I had. I actually get stuck at the login. I double checked the samba user I had set up and saved a fresh samba password..to no avail. Still can not access.
From my Windows XP machine, I can see the LMDE box on the windows workgroup..but when I try to click on it or access it, windows comes back telling me that I don't have admin rights.
Any thoughts on this appreciated. Thanks.

well after getting my ibm laptop up to speed running Mint Isadora 32bit LTS, and setting the printer up as windows shared printer from isadora to my LMDE box, everything seems to be working again, the printer and the shared directory. Thanks for those who replied.
