Hi all,

I had samba-1.9.18p10 working fine on my SGI IRIX 6.4 box.  I am trying
to install samba-2.0.3

Installation went through without a glitch and testparm went through
fine as well, with the old smb.conf

So I start samba as a daemon:

nmbd -D
smbd -D

But when I do "smbclient -L klebit" an erros occurs:

Added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
session request to KLEBIT failed
session request to *SMBSERVER failed

Looking at the log.smb I see:

[1999/04/02 12:02:53, 0] locking/shmem_sysv.c:sysv_shm_open(590)
  ERROR semctl: can't IPC_STAT. Error was Bad address
[1999/04/02 12:02:53, 0] locking/locking.c:locking_init(169)
  ERROR: Failed to initialise share modes!

Please help and thanks.
