If what you say is true, all you should need to do now will be to recompile Samba from source.

When you ./configure use the --with-acl-support switch.  You'll have to double check that by running... 

./configure --help | less

...and checking the --with options.  Remember that after you recompile you will have to take notice that the rpm install for Mandrake puts the fils under /etc/samba, but the source build will place them under /usr/local/samba (unless otherwise specified).

Also, using the source build default dir structure, /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb will not work properly until you edit it accordingly.

Best of luck!

Subject: [Samba] What to do for ACL support?


I'm trying to setup samba 2.2.4 on MandrakeLinux 8.2. The server should
act as a file storage for about 25 Windows 2000 clients.

Setting up a "basic" server which just serves the files is easy.
However, I'd also like to support NT ACLs on the Samba server. Well,
what do I have to do, to get it to work?

I'm using the Mandrake RPM for 2.2.4, which has ACL support compiled in
on a "Mandrake" 2.4.18 kernel (kernel- to be exact)
which also has ACL support. I use XFS as the filesystem. acl-2.0.0 and
attr-2.0.1 are installed.

Thanks for help and/or pointers to documentation,
