Description of problem:
Why isn't samba split into samba and samba-devel packages.  I was searching for
a while to try to find the samba-devel package when someone pointed out to me
that the headers were in the samba package.  I don't need a samba sever, just a
client.  But to compile GNOME (specifically, gnome-vfs-extras) from cvs, I do
need libsmbclient.h.
Comment 1 Jay Fenlason 2003-08-04 10:34:07 EDT
libsmbclient.{a,h,so} was accidentally put in samba instead of samba-common in the first 
samba-3.0 package set.  I've moved it to the correct rpm and built a new rpm set for RawHide.  
I considered adding a -devel package, but the only files in it would be libsmbclient.a and 
libsmbclient.h, and it would require the samba-common package (libsmbclient needs 
/etc/samba/smb.conf), so there wouldn't be much point to it, and Samba is already split into 
too many packages already.
