Because of a problem with the combination of OSX 10.4 and samba 3.0.13a I have installed the rpms of version 3.0.20a (since yum won't).
Now I can start samba using /usr/sbin/smbd directly. But the '/etc/init.d/smb start' gives a 'failed'. So I cannot let samba start automatticaly after a reboot. Annoying.
The output in /var/log/messages says:
Oct 8 14:02:47 boar nmbd: [2005/10/08 14:02:47, 0] param/params.c:OpenConfFile(538)
Oct 8 14:02:47 boar nmbd: params.c:OpenConfFile() - Unable to open configuration file "/etc/samba/smb.conf":
Oct 8 14:02:47 boar nmbd: Permission denied
So I thing that somewhere in /etc/init.d/smb there is something the new version of samba can't handle. But I have no idea what it could be (I am not a programmer).
Does anyone here know what the problem could be in /etc/init.d/smb when you go from version 3.0.14a to 3.0.20a??
