[Samba] Samba 2.2.2, queries

I have noticed a problem with the packaging scripts that create the
samba.depot - it creates the
var and var/locks file in /var/usr/local/samba and
/var/usr/local/samba/locks; of course the actual
directory that you would expect it to be in is /usr/local/samba/var and
I have submitted a patch to get this resolved, but in the meantime, perhaps
that depot that you are
pulling was created with these packages; if so, then you should be able to
create by hand
the /usr/local/samba/var subdirectory, edit the
/usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf file to increase your
log level to 10, and be able to get some logs to see why smbd and nmbd are
I have noticed similar symptoms when the directory samba expects for var is
missing; it cannot create
the files in var/locks, and fails, but since the LOGS also go in the var
subdirectory, there's no debug trail.
Let me know if this helps,

Hi Martyn / Samba Team
thank you for that information.
I had removed the old version but I can probably resotr it from a month end
However I have just downloaded the 2.2.3 version (not a)
and I still get the same problems.
I have disabled gcc and using the HP C Ansi compiler.
everything configures fine with warnings but no errors, and I run the make
There must be something I'm doing wrong as my other sco / aix boxes are
Anyone out there have any ideas ?

If you have installed a binary version, then I assume you had a working
pre-installed samba that came with your distribution of unix.
Various different versions of samba produced by vendors have different
files in different places (e.g. smb.conf on Slackware 8.0 is in /etc/samba
in v7.0 it is in /etc and in source versions it is usually in
/usr/local/lib/samba) so it is advisable to use the package control system
on your OS to remove old versions before installing new versions. Also, I
would reccommend you get the package for samba from the place you got the
original, which in the case of a preinstalled version would be the
installation media (cd, floppy, ftp etc.)
Hope this helps.
