    The saga continues, but THANK GOD 'make revert' WORKS. Here is my
problem. I am trying to compile 3.0.7 from source and install it on my
Mandrake 7.2 box. The gcc compiler is 2.95.3. Here is what I have done:

[stop samba]

# ./configure --prefix=/usr --with-smbmount
# make
# make install

# /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb start

Here is what I get:

[root at Nemesis david]# tail /var/log/messages
Sep 23 21:01:28 Nemesis smb: smbd startup failed
Sep 23 21:01:28 Nemesis smb: nmbd startup failed

# make revert (pray with fingers crossed)

Sep 23 21:01:59 Nemesis smb: smbd startup succeeded
Sep 23 21:01:59 Nemesis smb: nmbd startup succeeded

[root at Nemesis david]# smbclient -U% -L localhost
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Domain=[RB_LAW] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.0.9]

(Big sigh of relief)

Ok, so what went wrong?? ./configure went ok. make seemed to go ok. The
following binaries were built:

[root at Nemesis source]# ls bin/
CP437.so*          expand_msdfs.so*  libsmbclient.so*  ntlm_auth*
rpcclient*       smbcquotas*  smbspool*   tdbbackup*  winbindd*
CP850.so*          extd_audit.so*    net*              pdbedit*
shadow_copy.so*  smbd*        smbstatus*  tdbdump*
audit.so*          fake_perms.so*    netatalk.so*      profiles*
smbcacls*        smbmnt*      smbtree*    testparm*
cap.so*            full_audit.so*    nmbd*             readonly.so*
smbclient*       smbmount*    smbumount*  testprns*
default_quota.so*  libsmbclient.a    nmblookup*        recycle.so*
smbcontrol*      smbpasswd*   swat*       wbinfo*

Where do I start looking to find out what failed?? Has anybody else got this
