If anyone is interested, i have a 4.3.0 samba from debian experimental rebuilded to debian Jessie. 


I scripted it, so if you want, get the script here. 




get this file : 



what i does, it adds the experimental deb-src to jessie to get the source. 

Installs the needed packages to build.

Get the patched files make the compile work.

Patched the needed files. 

Build samba 4.3.0 

Move the deb to a “deb location” 

Add this location to your apt. 


And now you have a apt ready samba 4.3.0 debs. 


If you have multiple servers, you can setup a webserver to serve the debs. 


Read the code, its pretty simple. 


Please to test this first before using it in production!! 

Its a works fine for me ! 


Theoratical, since im using the debian source packages, when 4.3. is in Jessie backports,

You can install that one, this is a fully on debian based package, nothing changed besides some package version numbers. 


Example filenames like : 



Example policy 

apt-cache policy samba
