ER, did you actually ask anything there :-D

What is wrong with the distro version of Samba ?

What errors are you getting?

I have had a look at this page on the linuxfromscratch wiki:


Hmm, Required


Just a bit different from the samba wiki:

apt-get install acl attr autoconf bison build-essential \
debhelper dnsutils docbook-xml docbook-xsl flex gdb krb5-user \
libacl1-dev libaio-dev libattr1-dev libblkid-dev libbsd-dev \
libcap-dev libcups2-dev libgnutls-dev libjson-perl \
libldap2-dev libncurses5-dev libpam0g-dev libparse-yapp-perl \
libpopt-dev libreadline-dev perl perl-modules pkg-config \
python-all-dev python-dev python-dnspython python-crypto \
xsltproc zlib1g-dev

You may get better results if you follow the Samba wiki:
