[PC-BSD Testing] Share tab of a folder in dolphin

Sharing currently doesn't work for either NFS or Samba.

NFS won't work until:

/usr/local/kde4/lib/kde4/libexec/fileshareset is set suid root

Additionally, that file is designed for Linux, meaning it has to be modified as so:

$smb_exports::conf_file = '/usr/local/etc/smb.conf';

my $authorisation_group:   either the default "fileshare" group should be created by the operating system or this line should be changed to the BSD equivalent used by NFS

system'/usr/sbin/exportfs', '-r');  this is not the command used in BSD and /etc/rc.d/nfsd should do all the proper mounting stuff, meaning that this whole section should be replaced with the BSD nfsd startup script.

I think the above should get sharing through NFS to work, but I may have missed something else


When sharing with Samba, the current firewall rules are blocking smb as I had to disable the firewall in order to use smb:/  However, I still could not see the shares, so there are additional Samba settings required. However, the More Samba Options in the Share tab does not ask for the root password, meaning the settings are useless as they are greyed out. Also, system settings (administrator mode) has disappeared from Kickoff -> Applications. And Samba settings in Kickoff are still screwy  as some stuff is still greyed out (I think Josh was working on this?)


If you right-click a folder in dolphin -> Properties -> Sharing -> Allowed Users -> Choose Group, all of the system groups show in the drop down menu for the new file share group which is a security risk for novice users. Is it possible to not show this list and only show groups the user has made (or the fileshare group above)? Ideally, there would be a New button in this screen so the user could create a group.
