Tricky installation. Existing alpha 18 git
Had to run make twice. OK with that now. But none of the commands would
work. samba, samba-tool. . . All gave errors e.g.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/steve/bin/samba-tool", line 26, in <module>
from samba.netcmd.main import cmd_sambatool
File "bin/python/samba/netcmd/main.py", line 24, in <module>
from samba.netcmd.delegation import cmd_delegation
File "bin/python/samba/netcmd/delegation.py", line 25, in <module>
from samba import provision
File "bin/python/samba/provision/__init__.py", line 80, in <module>
from samba.provision.common import (
File "bin/python/samba/provision/common.py", line 31, in <module>
ImportError: No module named tdb
I found that the build had placed hundreds of links in the first
directory in my path, /home/steve/bin. I moved the folder out of he path
and the commands began working again.
There are many binaries/scripts I'd not seen before e.g.
localgroup_add read_7 stat_3 write_12
to name but a few. Things seem to be working with the stuff under
samba/bin and samba/sbin but could someone explain what has happened?
Will I be needing that stuff? Do I need to run upgradeprovision?
BTW. Would it be possible for make install to actually install, rather
than have to rely on stuff that's left in my home folder?
Thanks and sorry for so many questions.
