I use debian 7.6 installed with a netinst CD.
Wheezy-backports has samba 4.1.9. Currenty all DC functions I have 
tested are working well.

the installation I have done is different from the description in the 
samba wiki. The installation procedure in the wiki describes installing 
the sernet packages. I wish to use the debian packages.

The debian package do a samba 3 compatible installation. So you get a 
NT4 style samba. That is fine for this distro, i.e. for all people who 
just want upgrade from older versions.

In the next days I will write down my installation procedure.
