Hi, I 'm using Slackware 7.0 (kernel 2.2.13) with Samba 2.0.6 on several servers on a networks of 250 PCs. I have no specifics problem. But be carreful : the compiled package of samba provided by slackware don't use the same default paths as original sources of samba. For example, if you reinstall Samba, your SMB.CONF must be in /usr/local/samba/lib/. Whereas if you use the binaries of slackware 7 samba will search SMB.CONF in /etc. It's the same thing about binaries of samba. Salckware install them in default path of linux (/usr/bin or /usr/local/bin). But when you reinstall original package of samba, they are not updated. the make install of samba don't copy binaries to default paths...
