Hi all!

I have downloaded Samba 2.2.5 and configured+built it, in order to have ACL 
support. Everything seems to work fine, but smbd dies inmediately after 
starting it ( nmbd keeps alive ).

The error message is this:
[2002/07/10 09:53:29, 0] lib/messages.c:message_init(112)
   ERROR: Failed to initialise messages database

System info:
	Kernel 2.4.18 + XFS 1.1 from SGI
	Debian 3.0( "Woody" ) upgraded to latest packages
	Samba-2.2.5 .deb package from Eloy Paris

	Samba 2.2.5 tarball from samba.org
	Configure line:

	./configure --with-fhs --prefix=/usr --exec-prefix=/usr --with-smbmount
	--with-pam --with-syslog --with-sambabook --with-utmp
	--sysconfdir=/etc --with-privatedir=/etc/samba 
	--localstatedir=/var --with-readline --with-quotas --with-msdfs 
	--with-winbind --with-winbind-auth-challenge

( pathnames for privatedir, sysconfdir, lockdir, etc. taken from files in 
samba-doc )

Configure gives no warning;
make & make install   succeed.

However, as stated before, smbd dies just after starting it.

Any advice, help, links, pointers, comments, etc. appreciated...

Thanks In Advance,
