Comment 1 Guenther Deschner 2009-07-16 05:50:20 EDT
This is fixed with 
samba-3.4.0-0.39.fc11 which has been submitted as an update candidate for Fedora 11.

Could you please verify and provide feedback there ?
Comment 2 Alexandre Thieme Reis 2009-07-16 08:56:34 EDT
This release fix the problem !!!
But ... is needed libtalloc 1.3.1 from fedora update testing repository, else smb do not start and testparm show this error:
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Processing section "[homes]"
testparm: symbol lookup error: testparm: undefined symbol: _talloc_get_type_abort

Thank you!
Comment 3 Andrew Brzozowski 2009-10-16 13:22:31 EDT
I can only reiterate Alexandre. I am running Fedora core 11 and all of a sudden, on 14th October, samba stop working. I looked all over the internet and could not find a solution until I came here. I had the same error when running testparm.

I ran yum update libtalloc and it resolved the problem. I can only assume that there was a bug in an update that I picked up that date.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '11'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2010-06-28 09:22:51 EDT
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
