Apparmor isn't installed, so it isn't that.

OK, fresh git pull:

samba -V
Version 4.7.0pre1-GIT-61d6882b54d

I did the two changes as recommended by Andreas and then compiled with:

./configure --with-system-mitkrb5
make install

I now get an error, python doesn't like Andreas's second patch, so
back to mine:

from samba import is_heimdal_built
import os

def make_kdcconf(realm, domain, kdcconfdir, logdir):

    if is_heimdal_built:

The provision command works, but kdc.conf is not created.

I do not have any Heimdal packages installed, but it seems that the
provision seems to think that Heimdal has been built. Looking in
pyglue.c , it seems that the test is if 'SAMBA4_USES_HEIMDAL' is
defined somewhere and as it seems to returning True, it must be ;-(


I am quite prepared to try or test anything.
