Description Stijn Hoop 2012-10-18 09:56:27 EDT
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:
