Although apparently deviating from smbsh/Linux/glibc, I think the
following is related.
I have long suspected there is something with 64-bit stuff needing
attention. Certainly under 2.0.7, and also, I'm 99% sure under earlier
versions and under the later 2.2.0alpha0, on a Sun U450 with Solaris 2.6
(32-bit mode) gives some warnings:
../lib/system.c: In function `sys_readdir':
../lib/system.c:350: warning: return from incompatible pointer type
which is at the code:
SMB_STRUCT_DIRENT *sys_readdir(DIR *dirp)
#if defined(HAVE_EXPLICIT_LARGEFILE_SUPPORT) && defined(HAVE_READDIR64)
So I suspect there are some 64-bit declarations and some '#if ...' things
that perhaps need some laborious attention by someone who understands the
issues and understands the Samba declarations (and intentions behind the
Hope that helps.
