I have been trying to get 2.2.7a to work on my Mac running 10.2.2. The configure, compile and install went through fine except for a few warnings. When I attempt to connect to the machine, I get the following errors:

[2002/12/17 16:05:14, 0] lib/util_sec.c:assert_gid(111)
  Failed to set gid privileges to (0,99) now set to (99,99) uid=(0,0)
[2002/12/17 16:05:14, 0] lib/util.c:smb_panic(1094)
  PANIC: failed to set gid

I found a few references to similar errors when searching Google but none of them seemed pertinent. In order to get the installation to match that installed by Apple with OS X 10.2, I used the following configure options:

./configure --sbindir=/usr/sbin --libdir=/usr/lib --with-configdir=/etc --bindir=/usr/bin --libexecdir=/usr/libexec --sysconfdir=/etc --with-piddir=/var/run --mandir=/usr/share/man --with-lockdir=/var/spool/lock --with-swatdir=/usr/share/swat --datadir=/usr/share --localstatedir=/var --with-logfilebase=/var/log/samba --disable-cups --with-ssl --with-sslinc=/usr/include/openssl --with-ssllib=/usr --with-codepagedir=/usr/share/codepages --with-privatedir=/var/db/samba

You'll notice that I set cups to disable because leaving it at auto wouldn't work since I don't have the cups header files on my machine. I've also tried the installation without the ssl options just to see if it would make a difference (it didn't).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
