Hi Angela,

This message comes from a check of the summary configure generates on what
it found it COULD and COULDNOT access on your system; specifically it was
unable to sucessfully compile and run tests/fcntl_lock.c and

I have been able to do this sucessfully on my 10.20 system.  Check your
config.log file to see if you can figure out why these test programs failed
to compile or run.

One other thing that might be doing you in is if your config.cache has
already got these set to NO...; grep for FCNTL_LOCK in config.cache and see
what it says.

Hope this helps,

        I am an unix admin trying to install samba 2.0.7 on a HP unix 10.20
        After a long string of checking messages, at end there is an ERROR
message which abort the configuration: 

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

        I was wondering what caused it and how to get around it. This is the
first time I ever encountered samba. I am trying to install this product by
the request of the application developer team. Your input will be greatly
