That is correct, Dominique. I have been asked in the past for 4.3 and 5.1 versions, but alas, I no longer have CD's for those versions. These are also unsupported versions except through arrangement with IBM. AIX 5.1 reached end-of-service in April, 2006.

When IBM drops support on for 5.2 on April 2009, I will likely not update the libs and just put out Samba updates until some as of yet unannounced date. Most of the development I am doing is on 5.3 with knowledge that 6.1 is about to be released.

*IF* I can get my hands on a set of 5.1 CD's and *IF* I can manage a decent gcc build on that platform, I'll see what I can manage. No promises. :-)

Otherwise, I would really consider moving to at least 5.2 and patch it here


and then download the binaries at the Samba site and visit my site for other goodies at http://pware.hvcc.edu
