can this also be applied to redhat 5.2 with a 2.2.4 kernel.

i am currently running 2.0.3 on this platform but i had to turn
off oplocks due to the following errors:

1999/04/13 15:57:37, 1] smbd/service.c:make_connection(488)
  pfs ( connect to service data as user pfs (uid=500, gid=500)
(pid 32108)
[1999/04/13 15:58:17, 0] smbd/oplock.c:oplock_break(742)
  oplock_break: receive_smb timed out after 30 seconds.
  oplock_break failed for file christ/compbudganalysis99.xls (dev = 811,

[1999/04/13 15:58:17, 0] smbd/oplock.c:oplock_break(812)
  oplock_break: client failure in break - shutting down this smbd.
[1999/04/13 15:58:17, 1] smbd/service.c:close_cnum(514)
  pfs ( closed connection to service data

these errors where occurring whenever a user accessed a file on the samba

once oplocks was turn off the problem stopped.

i believe we are running glibc2.0.7. on the box.

Hi all,

        I have made a RedHat 6.0 i386 binary rpm of 2.0.4b
with the glibc2.1 configuration fix available at :


This rpm is to be preferred over the one on the RedHat 6.0
cd as it contains an autoconf configuration test to work
around the glibc2.1 bug w.r.t. 64 bit locking (the one
that caused problems for multi-user MS-Access databases).

There is also a generic Samba 2.0.4b source rpm available at :

ftp:< mirror>/pub/samba/redhat/samba-2.0.4b-19990527.src.rpm

And now I'm off on vacation for a week (so don't expect instant
email response :-).

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
