Description Ales Zelinka 2013-06-07 11:35:53 EDT
samba doesn't start when system is in readonly-root mode because it can't write into /var/lib/samba.

Please add "files /var/lib/samba" to rwtab.

from /var/log/samba/log.smbd:

[2013/06/07 14:23:31,  0] ../source3/smbd/server.c:1200(main)
  smbd version 4.0.2 started.
