The source code compiles fine.  The daemons (smbd,nmbd) both crash upon 
startup with the same error.  I posted a message in March to this list and 
also submitted a bug report (actually, a similar bug, 3084, has already 
been submitted).

The bug I think has something to do with the way locales handling has 
changed in glibc 2.4. I *think* the bug possibly is also trigged in some 
perl code as well when using the "Locale::gettext" module but I have yet 
to get proof that glibc 2.4 is the cause.  For Samba, you can look at the 
bug report if you want.  Smbd/nmbd crash at gconv_db.c line 232.

Having said this, I don't have any confidence in all this because I am not 
a genius and my system is kind of a mess.  It would be nice if someone 
could tell me if samba 3.0 works with glibc 2.4 on their system.

Samba 4.0 seems to start up fine but with the config file examples I've 
seen it is not clear if Samba 4. will work for me. I don't have a kerberos 
authentication setup in my home network and it is unclear if I will need 
this to run Samba 4.
