Hello to all.
I have a HP-UX Workstation B180L running PARISC-Linux (Debian) 3.0
when i run apt-get install samba (whitch is the default way) everything
it ask me if i want to run as deamon or inetd: i have tested both.. same
result :/
I have also converted /etc/passwd to smbpasswd file
bonzo:/etc/samba# l
total 16
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root           59 Feb  1 14:00 debian_config
-rw-------    1 root     root          696 Feb  1 14:21 secrets.tdb
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          280 Feb  1 14:08 smb.conf
-rw-------    1 root     root         3022 Feb  1 14:00 smbpasswd

when i try to start samba i get following error in my logfile.
[2002/02/01 14:21:45, 0] passdb/secrets.c:secrets_init(43)

        netbios name = BONZO
        server string =
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        path = /tmp
        read only = No
        guest ok = Yes
========= EOF ======================
as you can see nothing to make any major errors in.. (Im using SWAT)
I encounter the same error when compileing 2.2.2 samba from source..
Do you have any sugestions??
