hope someone has some idea for me...
I'm on a virtual server, so my highest level directory that I can write
I place samba-latest_tar.tar in
then I tar svzf samba-latest_tar.tar
everything extracts ok
then I go to:
./configure --prefix=/usr/home/andrew/usr/local/samba --
everything seems happy and I run make and then make install and
all still seems groovy. I copy the smb.config file to:
so I cd to:
and run testparm and it still seems to be searching for the
smb.config file in the wrong place as seen below:
Load smb config files from /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf
params.c:OpenConfFile() - Unable to open configuration file
Error loading services.
theheadwaters% testparm /usr/home/andrew/usr/local/samba/lib
Load smb config files from /usr/home/andrew/usr/local/samba/lib
Loaded services file OK.
ERROR: lock directory /usr/local/samba/var/locks does not exist
Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions
in the dump, the first thing I note is that for code page directory it is
where did my prefix go?
scrolling down it show the same problem with the password
directory and the lock directory.
ideas out there?
