2.2.4 Kernel
2.0.2 Samba RPM

Upgrading the Samba RPM changes the mode on
/var/spool/samba.  Printing stops functioning.
Replicated the problem on three machines.

Fix: chmod 0666 /var/spool/samba
-OR- uninstall RPM and copile from scratch.

Also, the problem with the login permissions shown in some
previous bug reports has been bothering me also.  The 2.0.2
RPM will not auth properly for all MS Windows platforms.
I just turned on smbpasswd support and called it good.
However, that is only because I don't have time to debug
Samba anymore today.

MM. I suppose you mean 0777?
Will be fixed in next samba release.
