This should have been easy. I started smb and nmb and copied my smb.conf
file from 11.0 (which worked great) and I have no shares. Bummer!

To be precise, smb is running:

ps -A | grep smb
6161 ? 00:00:00 smbd
6162 ? 00:00:00 smbd


the smb.conf file appears to be valid:

testparm /etc/samba/smb.conf
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Processing section "[virtualbox]"
Processing section "[mailbox]"
Loaded services file OK.

but there are no shares:

Any ideas? I have tried putting in sample smb.conf files with the same
results. I just don't see what's going on, and could use some
suggestions. Thanks!
