To the Samba development team,


I did not manage to compile the samba-2.2alfa2 system on linux 6.2

The ./configure command ends with:

  checking configure summary
  ERROR: No locking available. Running Samba would be unsafe
 configure: error: summary failure. Aborting config

gcc version egcs-2.91.66 19990314/Linux (egcs-1.1.2 release)

linux kernel:  2.2.14-5.0


I tried to compile the same on Aix 4.2.

(I know this system should be upgraded, but can't for now 
because of some old software)

AIX Operating system 4.2

GCC compiler: egcs 2.91.60 19981201 (egcs 1.1.1 release)

Got the following:

  linking bin/smbd
  ld: 0711-311 ERROR: Undefined symbol: ._posix_getgrgid_r
  collect2: ld returned 8 exit status


The good news: samba2.2alfa2 compiles fine on AIX 4.3 with gcc

gcc version 2.95.2 19991024

The main thing I tested it for is the use within a W2K DOMAIN  (Native,
active directory ..) and using the DOMAIN authentication.

This works fine.
