Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 2557
samba for on sparc can only see first line in /etc/smbpasswd file
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
Samba-2.0.3 from redhat-sparc 6.0 (on an Ultra-10) can only
see one line in /etc/smbpasswd (properly created with
makesmbpasswd.sh or via smbadduser). As soon as more than
one line is present,it fails on all entrys ("Cannot find
xxxx in smbpasswd file" or something like that is written in
the logs). This is when trying with "smbpasswd", "smbclient"
or when connecting from a windows client. More info
available upon request.
There seems to be some 64-bit collision issues on the UltraSparc
(it's using 64-bit types when 32 seems to be expected.) I'll
enter something in the samba bug tracker and get back to you.
I found the bug, it is in the kernel and easily fixable.
All of SMB_IOC_* ioctl()s are not being translated from
the userspace 32-bit types into the kernel 64-bit types,
this means changes to arch/sparc64/kernel/ioctl32.c in
I think it can be removed from the Samba bug tracker,
because their code is fine, notting?
sure, but the problem here was in using
ftello64 and the like to get file offsets
and then doing some various pointer math
on it - would that have caused these bugs

Fixed in samba-2.0.4b-5, by a really ugly hack.
Will be available in next Raw Hide.
