I'm running OpenBSD 3.1, and since being informed that since 2.2.3a 
contains a bug I should upgrade to 2.3.4 - which I've done.

I've installed this from source, and havn't seen any reason to believe 
the build process didn't work properly (Other than having duplicated 
binaries in /usr/local/samba/bin/ and 
in /usr/source_distributions/samba-2.2.4/source/bin/smbd 
(source_distributions being the directory in which I store all binary 

Firstly, does having these duplicated binaries mean something's gone 
wrong in the build process?

Secondly, smbstatus gives me the following output:


[kremlyn at molotov -> (~)] : /usr/local/samba/bin/smbstatus

Samba version 2.2.4
Service      uid      gid      pid     machine

Failed to open byte range locking database
ERROR: Failed to initialise locking database
Can't initialise locking module - exiting


I can't see the samba box at all in Network Neigborhood (and I know 
smb.conf is fine, as it worked in 2.2.3a before I upgraded).

Thanks in advance.
