RPM package installation sources of Samba 3.2.1 (STABLE) are available

Supported SUSE Linux based products currently are SUSE Linux 10.1, 10.2,
10.3, 11.0, SLES 9, SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE) Desktop and Server 10,
and factory (i.e. the currently developed product).  For some
architectures - like ia64, ppc, s390(x) - you will find a limited
releases subset.

The same package installation sources are also available at

Please use a mirror close to your site.  A list of mirrors is
available at  There choose a mirror at the right top
of the page.

There are also a number of SUSE mirrors.  A list of mirror sites is
available at

To support easier collaboration Samba packages are also provided by the
openSUSE Build Service (OBS).  Cf.
currently is identical to STABLE but will move on soon.

The OBS supports an easy approach to create binary packages for CentOS,
Fedora, Mandriva, RedHat Enterprise (RHEL), SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE),
and openSUSE.  Access is possible through
or a subversion-like command line tool named "OpenSUSE build service
command-line" (osc).  Bindings to perl are also available.  See

If you encounter any problems with these packages please don't blame the
Samba Team.  Instead file a bug to, pick
product Samba 3.x, then select 'component' Packaging and set 'assign to'
to samba-maintainers at suse dot de.  Or use
with the same assignee instead.

For general information about Samba as part of SUSE Linux based products
see  For reporting bugs and how to collect
advanced debugging information see

Our customers, our products, our responsibility.

Have a lot of fun...
