we've build samba RPMs from the 2_2 CVS tree. The packages are available
for SuSE Linux 7.2, 7.3 and 8.0. You'll find them at


in the corresponding subdirectories.

Users from Europe, in particular German universities, please use our
primary mirror at

The source RPM for all SuSE Linux versions is in the src subdirectory.

This version is compiled with an appropriate include/version.h to allow
people to check which CVS date is the base by calling

/usr/sbin/smbd -V

Be carefull with starting samba while booting your system, cause the
start script asks you for a explicit confirmation about using a CVS
snapshot version. This might lead to a hanging boot process.

This message also informs about the samba bug reporting page

You'll find this message for proofreading in

If you find a bug only in the package or have any further suggestions,
please feel free to contact lmuelle+samba at SuSE.de.

We'll try to build fresh RPMs on a daily base.

Hope that helps to develop a stable 2.2.4 release.

Have a lot of fun...
