I've successfully compiled 4.2.1, done make install, and run testparm as
well as smbd -b to check the build. Looks good.


So now how do I start the service? If I just do [sudo service samba start] I
get "Service not recognized"?


Thank you, Caesar.


P.S. for LinuxMint 17 Rebecca, here's the ./configure command


sudo ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var
--with-piddir=/var/run/samba --with-pammodulesdir=/lib/security 

--without-systemd --enable-fhs                        

--sbindir=/usr/sbin --bindir=/usr/bin --libdir=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu


--with-lockdir=/var/run/samba --enable-gnutls


The pre-requisites are here:
