i have some problems with my passdb backend and openladp-samba server.
Logs, starting smb.conf:

[2005/06/14 00:00:30, 0] smbd/server.c:main(798)
  smbd version 3.0.14a started.

  Loading ldapsam:ldap://localhost/ failed!
Do I need one more package or packages?

I installed the BerkeleyDB and the -devel , db packages

my entry in the smb.conf with openldaplinking for passdb is:
passdb backend = ldapsam:ldap://

There is another problem as for the openldap backend and smb.
My samba shares work for me, if I comment out "passdb backend =
They don't work for me, if the passdbline is inside!
BTW, do I need a passdb backend for an openldapserver anyway or is there
enough to edit  the slapd.conf "database  lbm" and the path to database: 
"directory /var/lib/ldap"?
I have two sambas: samba 3.0.7 built from rpm packages and compilied samba 
The backend error do only appeare in samba 3.0.14a, not in the rpm 3.0.7.
My system is:
openldap 2.2.26, samaba 3.0.14a and 3.0.7., SuSE 9.2.

Best regards
