    13 I wonder why this wasn't solved in 5 years. It's quite common and  
    14 makes mc unusable. The average timeout is ~1 minute.

    18 We'll have this problem as long as mc uses Samba configuration  
    19 files. Every time Samba changes the format of its configuration  
    20 files, mc will have to be upgraded (not just recompiled). 
    21  
    22 I see two solutions: 
    23  
    24 1) Use libsmbclient. This way, upgrading Samba will upgrade the  
    25 client library, and mc will recognize new configuration. 
    26  
    27 2) Don't use Samba configuration files in mc. Use a separate  
    28 configuration file or store all configuration in ~/.mc/ini 
    29  
    30 I would prefer that we at least try to use libsmbclient, and if it  
    31 doesn't work, let's report it to Samba maintainers. This way,  
    32 libsmbclient will be ready for mc some day.

    3611The mc's built-in samba library which is used to access data across 
    3712smb links is taken from an old samba version. This can cause  
     
    5227 with current vesions of libcap an error (redefinition of struct  
    5328statfs) occurs while building mc.
