Samba 3.2/3.3 scratchpad

  • Samba 3.2.x
    • can read smb.conf (psmedley)
    • compiled successfully 3.2.2, 3.2.3, 3.2.4, 3.2.5, 3.2.6, 3.2.7, 3.2.8, 3.2.9, 3.2.10, 3.2.11
    • reads interfaces successfully
    • can login successfully
    • Problems:
      • directories are shown as files
      • cannot create/read/write files
      • smbstatus cannot read/lock .tdb files
      • loops with LPQ background thread in printing.c (CPU load 50% - 60%) (Is this related to inability of 3.0.x to provide queue management with "printing = os2"?)
      • cannot login on password prompt (online via commandline parameters)
      • password is not masked!
      • eCS (OS/2) specific patches from 3.0 since 08/2008 changeset #149 missing
    • no significant changes in behaviour noticed between 3.2.2 and 3.2.6
    • with 3.2.7 libreplace_network.m4 is added, if it is present during configure, Samba 3.2 doesn't compile.
    • Removing it makes 3.2.7, 3.2.8, 3.2.9, 3.2.10, 3.2.11 compile and work like previous builds.
    • This file is present in Samba 3.3.x too, nevertheless these do compile!
    • Done:

  • Samba 3.4pre1
    • not compilable at the moment (no work done yet)
