Samba server installation ..

Posted by imdad on February 26, 2009

i have a normal linux installation (fedora 5). I was stuck trying to start the samba server after installing it (version: 3.3, installed from a tar ball).

Then after quite a research, this script worked:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/samba/lib
killall -9 nmbd
killall -9 smbd
/usr/local/samba/sbin/nmbd -D -s /etc/samba/smb.conf
/usr/local/samba/sbin/smbd -D -s /etc/samba/smb.conf

file and save the above lines as

change its mode to executable

% chmod +x

execute it with root privileges

% ./startsmb

thats it … then you’ll not get errors like:

/usr/local/samba/sbin/smbd: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
