Description Michael Tokarev 2000-02-03 16:54:13 UTC
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...

> [] you can also use quotas via the PAM support, I believe.
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
_restrictions_ automatically.

Okay, thanks anyway.
