Hi all,

I try to install Samba 4.3 binary on Ubuntu Server 15.04 (same for 14.04) without success - the 4.1.x version as ubuntu package all have problems with Windows 10.
I did the following:
1. Install OS specific libraries for Ubuntu >=14.04 (according https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Operating_system_requirements/Dependencies_-_Libraries_and_programs <https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Operating_system_requirements/Dependencies_-_Libraries_and_programs>)
2. download & unpack samba-4.3.0.tar.gz
3. ./configure; make; make install in the /etc/samba repository

Result: smb.conf file does not exists, neither in /etc/samba nor in /usr/locale was not created. The smb service can not be started as well.

Is there a detailed description out there how to compile and set up Samba 4.3 under Ubuntu Server 15.04 or even 14.04?
