I am trying to build samba4 for an Ubuntu 12 server, as the provided
package by Canonical is an alpha version. I got the latest? source from
git:git clone git://git.samba.org/samba.git samba-master
I then build it from this source (make/configure/maske install) and it
worked. However, I realized that I neededto package it for Ubuntu to
recognize the install and not offer to install it when other programs
looked for samba4...
I tried to build a package with git-buildpackage but I got a error for
I understand I was missing that file, but not only: debian/rules does
not seem to be included.
From there I got lost with various how-tos - even the official samba link
git clone git://git.debian.org/pkg-samba/samba4 samba4-unstable
Does not work either...
I am sure there is a way to build a package for the last stable samba4 for Ubuntu, but I cant seem to figured it out...
Anyone with some pointers?
Thanks for the help,
