Subject: Does Red Hat Samba 2.2.2 RPM support ACLs?

Of course, I understand that ACL support has to be compiled into the kernel
as well, but if I do that, can I turn ACL support on in Red Hat? I am
running 7.1 with my kernel upgraded to 2.4.10; I am thinking of adding ACL

I had a similar problem.  I ended up uninstalling PGP.  However, from
what I could find PGP had installed a service on the 2K computer that
held a keys files locked.  You could try installing it with the users
keys on a network drive.  I haven't tried it though.
