samba-winbind package wants /var/log/samba
Last modified: 2012-12-20 11:14:01 EST
samba-winbind by default logs to /var/log/samba, however the package does not have a dependency on the samba package which includes the /var/log/samba dir.
Two possible resolutions:
- include the dependency on samba-4.0.0 package
- move /var/log/samba to the samba-common package (my preferred solution)
I noticed this in journalctl on an up to date F18:
