Description Larry Fahnoe 2000-12-03 20:28:34 UTC
Red Hat Linux release 7.0 (Guinness)
Kernel 2.2.17-4 on an alpha


   encrypt passwords = yes
   smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd

NT 4 client attempts to connect to server using valid username/password,
/var/log/samba/client.log shows:

[2000/12/03 14:19:09, 0] lib/util_sec.c:assert_gid(72)
  Failed to set gid privileges to (-1,500) now set to (0,0) uid=(0,0)
[2000/12/03 14:19:09, 0] lib/util.c:smb_panic(2381)
  PANIC: failed to set gid

The same smb.conf with the same release of RedHat on my Intel system works

This appears to be a kernel problem. Reassigning there.

Can you apply the attached and rebuild your kernel - does it work then?

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2000-12-15 22:14:36 UTC
Created attachment 6493 [details]
patch to possibly fix samba/kernel interaction

Comment 7 Larry Fahnoe 2000-12-16 21:51:39 UTC
Yes, the patch solves the problem.

Tested with patch applied to 2.2.18 stock kernel, not RH 2.2.17-4.  I'm assuming that you will get the updated entry points to the proper kernel folks, but 
let me know if you are not planning to and I will send them the update.



Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-07 08:05:19 UTC
This got fixed in both the 2.4.0 rawhide kernels and whatever the 
last 2.2 one we built was.
