Can anyone tell me what the reason samba is tied to the desktop install ? If you try to uninstall it , it wants to remove mint meta cinnamon dvd. Do i need mint meta cinnamon dvd ?

Just wonderiing is all.

Um ... so a desktop user can share services to others on his home network?

Can't answer the one about cinnamon-dvd .

You can stop it from starting at boot as a compromise:

Code: Select all

sudo mv /etc/init/smbd.conf /etc/init/smbd.conf.stop

You might want to stop it's little brother as well:

Code: Select all

sudo mv /etc/init/nmbd.conf /etc/init/nmbd.conf.stop
