I have compiled samba-4.5.5 with waf.
But, there were 93 shared libraries required by 'smbd'
The size of the shared libraries occupy around 35 MB.
Now, I cannot use 'waf' build system as it creates executables and shared
libraries with huge size. I need to use the 'autoconf' build system in
order to reduce the size of the executable and the number of shared
My requirement is that I want a samba server only for "File Sharing" with
basic authentication using 'smbpasswd' (encrypted). Other features like
print sharing, AD domain controller, NT4 domain controller, local domain
master are not needed.
I refer the below link and came to know about 'autoconf' build system to
be used in samba-4.5.5 to create small size executable and shared
Kindly reply with the procedure to use 'autoconf' build and provide your
Thanks & Regards,
be inspired ! be happy! be urself!
