View Full Version : OSX.4 Server - anyone compiled VFS Recycle module?

10th August 2006, 09:00 PM
Hi all,

Having moved from a Linux samba server to OSX.4 server I am dissappointed to find that Apple removed any form of network trash/recycling.

Samba 3.0 has the capability of using a VFS module entitled 'recycle' which provides a similar function. Apple don't seem to have included this even as an option.

Has anyone here tried compiling just that module to add over a OSX.4 server install?

I'm keen not to mess too much with Apple's pre-built samba (ie don't really want to compile an entire fresh install of samba).

Any advice welcome!



PS: While we're talking recycling - anyone got a fix for AFP and a network trash? Also had this working on my Linux box netatalk install and missing it! JMD

Thanks for the link. The forum looks good. I've added it to my bookmarks.

Unfortunately, my searches there suggested that there is no network trash method for AFP.

Thanks anyway!
