Seems that the 3.0.2a installation put most of the files in different
directories from the original 2.2.8a (which came bundled with this slackware
The rc.samba file would not start nmbd or smbd and I couldn't manually start
them from anywhere except when I went right into the /usr/local/samba/sbin
directory ! When I did start them I was still being told I was running
Thanks also for reminding be where swat was called from :-) Doesn't seem to
be a "chkconfig" here.
As it was causing me problems and I'm new to Linux/Samba I've just reverted
back to 2.2.8a. All seems to be running Ok, just wish there was some way of
now removing everything that the 3.0.2a installation has left behind - just
to keep things tidy :-)
