I'm trying to setup Samba on my linux machine, running openSUSE 11.1 and KDE 
4.3, so that I can share a folder with my wife's laptop which is running 
Windows XP.

The following makes me think my samba installation is seriously broken, but I 
don't where to start looking to fix it...

barrowhillfarm:~ # smbd restart
Aborted (core dumped)
barrowhillfarm:~ # smbpasswd -a hils
Failed to open file:///etc/samba/secrets.tdb
Failed to open file:///etc/samba/secrets.tdb

Any suggestions would be gratefully received :)
