Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 18206
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 EDT
Ive been having problems with samba lately.
What I find in log.smb is:
[2000/10/03 13:31:18, 0] locking/shmem_sysv.c:sysv_shm_open(663)
Can't create or use IPC area. Error was File exists
[2000/10/03 13:31:18, 0] locking/locking.c:locking_init(174)
ERROR: Failed to initialise share modes
samba 2.0.5a-12 (I also tried 2.0.7 with same effect)
I think that the problems has begun after upgrading libc, although I am
not willing to do a downgrade at the moment...
Has there been any improvement/changes?
I've found the cause of this behaviour! It was not the glibc upgrade, but
rather kernel patch from the Openwall project (clearing shared memory segments
option). Hope this helps somebody else :>
Thank you. Not a samba bug.
