Hi Henkel,

I've finally succeed rpmbuild-ing samba, but this time it's the newest
release of samba, the 3.2.6 version. To handle the cifs.upcall.8.gz thing, I


in the respective line in samba.spec. I also installed ccache so I don't
have to uncomment the ccache part in samba.spece. I have simulated the
installation (upgrade) and they work. :) Hope this can help.
