The AppArmor profiles for nmbd and smbd prevented smbd and nmbd from running
on Opensuse 11.4. If you have not done so already go to YaST>Novell
AppArmor>AppArmor Control Panel>Configure Profile Modes. Set both
user.sbin.[s,n]mbd to complain rather than enforce. If this works you can
rewrite the profiles for proper operation or leave them off.
If it ain't broken you're not trying.
