Description Michael Tokarev 1999-09-27 19:24:43 UTC
samba server package installs a "homedir" /home/samba
that is included in cpio archive. If a customer have an
nfs-mounted home directory (via automount, very common
for Solaris, for example), installing samba on "non-root"
machine will fail with message "unable to create
/home/samba"). This is a some general question -- why
samba need that directory?!

Removed in samba-2.0.5a-14, in the next Raw Hide release.
