I'm using Samba as a PDC with roaming profiles on a Debian Etch machine,
the clients are Windows XP/2000 machines.
I just installed security upgrades with aptitude, and this upgraded all
samba 3.0.24-6etch4 packages to 3.0.24-6etch6 (except for samba-doc
which was upgraded to 3.0.24-6etch7).
Immediately after the upgrade, my users could not load their profiles at
login anymore. Errors popped out regarding problems loading
insignificant files from their profiles, such as cookies, links to
recently opened files, Java cache files, etc.
This caused Windows to open up a new temporary profile, making everyone
lose their settings. PANIC!!
I now downgraded back to all 3.0.24-6etch4 packages, and things seem to
be working fine again.
What's happening with Samba packages for Debian Etch?
I saw a security announce yesterday by Steve Kemp, but it's a bit
confusing, for Etch it lists some 6etch6 packages and some 6etch7 others.
Are the current packages broken?
And... is there anyone officially working on more up-to-date Samba
packages for Debian Etch? Or will we have to live with 3.0.24 until the
next Debian stable upgrade?
