Hi Louis,

For the earlier issue on deb 4.7.6 packages I have not been able to 
understand what we did wrong, we recompiled with the same clean setup 
and where not able to reproduce the issue... I've tried to look for 
different dependencies updates and couldn't find any differences. I'm 

Anyway I've compiled Samba 4.11.7 and Samba 4.12.0 for CentOS7 and 
CentOS8 packages:


Packages for Centos8 and Samba 4.12.0 are still experimental as not yet 
tested in production, but I hope to be able to go forward on that soon 
as CentOS8 is now getting more traction.

The rpm are backported from Fedora 32 packages using the great work from 
Gunter et al. by switching from MIT kerberos to Heimdal and fixing a few 
dependencies versions. Centos7 need porting of newer gnutls (thanks to 
Niko Kadel Garcia) and Centos8 need a few extra packages that are not 
yet packaged in EPEL.

You might take a look at rst/sphinx for documenting the installation of 
your packages, it makes nice docs! You may take a look at our doc for 
inspiration (note: there may be still a few pieces of French here and 
there, translation is going on :-) but it should be mostly 
understandable) :
