Subject: RE: Is this a typical Frame/NT bug?

I recall a message thread sometime over the summer on another list having to do with Samba bugs related to NT; could have specifically been related to NT with SP 4 or 5. The gist of it was Samba was being upgraded in order to provide compatibility. >From the sound of it, you're running an old version of Samba.... From your description, this doesn't sound like a FM bug.

Hi; After using FrameMaker (and, once upon a time, FrameBuilder) on UNIX with no problems, we recently switched to 5.5.6 on NT. Today, I went to save a document. Our documents are still on UNIX, so I go through Samba to the UNIX directory. We use RCS, and I had the doc locked. Doc didn't save. I didn't really take in the first message, except that it didn't seem to be referring to my doc (rwhtables.fm). Try again...."File has changed since you last opened it. Save anyway?" (Yes.) "Can't write file rwhtables.fm.AC2 to disk." Tried this a few times, getting random extensions added to the filename. Then, I was told, "Document was locked by User: 0, Date: Dec 31, 1969. Save anyway?" Huh? Yeah, save. After a few tries, it saved. I tried saving a backup version under a different name, too. Alas, when I try to open the doc (either version) I'm told it's corrupt, and that I should check the disk/network, and/or open a backup file. I've heard that Frame is less stable on NT; is this a typical problem? Sounds like something Word would do. =8^0 Ed (running full-screen eXceed, damnit) Treijs ** To unsubscribe, send a message to email@example.com ** ** with "unsubscribe framers" (no quotes) in the body. ** ** To unsubscribe, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org ** ** with "unsubscribe framers" (no quotes) in the body. **
