Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 9095
readline dependance; no quota support
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
Two notes about samba:
all samba packages made dependant from libreadline. This is samba
bug, as it's configure checks if readline is available (used only
by smbsh/smbwrapper that is not build anyway), and places it to LIBS
in makefile (it should be placed to something like SMBSH_LIBS).
Resolution for now is to make patch for generated Makefile (and maybe
for configure.in) to remove -lreadline.
RedHat's samba compiled without quotas support -- it may be not a
bug, but quotas are exists on Linux and are useable (I think).
Just add --with-quotas to configure in .spec.
And third issue -- maybe pass arch-vendor-os to configure?
The readline support is in smbclient too.
Quotas are turned on in samba-2.0.6-7; you can
also use quotas via the PAM support, I believe.
> The readline support is in smbclient too.
Oh, it is, yes, I forgot that. Just a funny dependance
for other executables (notable [sn]mbd) -- daemon need
readline for it's operation :^) ...
This, if a bug, is veeeery unimportant...

I don't think so -- quota support is for "correct" disk free space
report, i.e so that Windoze machines report your available quota, not
total space on disk. Pam is not needed -- system handles quota
Okay, thanks anyway.
