guess that you are using 'security = share' - that has been targeted for
removal if not already removed.

No reason to waste your time doing google searches for out of date
configuration notions when the official samba documentation is thorough.

Yea, that's what will take the 6 weeks to go through :-).

Everything in all the documents I've seen is about how to
make it more secure. I want it to be less secure. I'm
behind a firewall, I'm the only user, I don't want to
have to give passwords to connect to my samba shares.
Somewhere in the 10 million lines of samba docs it
probably says how to do that, but my config worked for years
till they improved it in the latest release.

probably in the 'by example' documentation there's a scenario that would
approach your needs but I suspect you enjoy the opportunity to moan
rather than sort through documentation. In my opinion, you should be
thankful that there is such exhaustive documentation.

As for 'improvements' - I think I have been saying on this list for a
few years now that 'security = share' is deprecated and if indeed it has
been finally put to death, so be it -after all it simulated Windows
95/98 file sharing mode and even Windows ceased to support it in every
release since 2003.

Samba being open source, you could compile an older version
in /usr/local yourself or even use CentOS 5.x for many years and keep
antiquity alive should you choose.

It isn't deprecated in any of the docs I can find, and going through
the .conf file line by line and looking up the description of the
parameters shows that it should indeed still be
doing what I want it to do.

It acts a great deal like the user I gave it to run as isn't
actually the user it is using. If I chmod the directory I
want to modify to 777 instead of 755, then the deletes work.

I have filed this bug since it sure seems like it ought
to be working the same way it always did according to
the docs.
