Description Jordan Russell 2006-07-16 01:53:06 EDT
Description of problem:
The default smb.conf file in the 3.0.23-1 package has:

   log file = /usr/local/samba/var/%m.log

No such path exists. It should be:

   log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log

as in previous versions.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Dmitry Butskoy 2006-09-11 13:08:00 EDT

/usr/spool/samba (in [printers] section) instead of /var/spool/samba

Comment 2 Dmitry Butskoy 2006-09-11 13:13:34 EDT
...and it is in 3.0.23a-1.fc5.1, which was built on 10 Aug, whereas this bug
appears one month earlier. :(
Comment 3 Dmitry Butskoy 2007-02-16 09:10:20 EST
Still exist ("/usr/spool/samba") in the latest 3.0.24
