Bug Description

Binary package hint: samba

I reported this within the past week when I installed samba4 in error. This time it was a new install, and I took the same error even though I had not installed samba4. Thought this might just provide additional information. This install was done after all the current updates had been applied to Jaunty.

ProblemType: Package
Architecture: i386
DistroRelease: Ubuntu 9.04
ErrorMessage: subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Package: samba 2:3.3.2-1ubuntu3.1
SourcePackage: samba
Title: package samba 2:3.3.2-1ubuntu3.1 failed to install/upgrade: subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Uname: Linux 2.6.28-15-generic i686

 Are you still having problems with this? Can you post the contents of your /etc/samba/smb.conf file.

Hi Chuck, - I'm afraid I can't be of much help, since I've had to do a complete reinstall of the system since that time, due to some other problems. And I have not yet tried to install samba because the other problem has obviated the need for the networking I was trying to accomplish.
I can try to install samba again if it will help in this matter. Would that be of any help? - Don

Hi Chuck, Oooppss! I find that before I did the re-install, I did save some things, and one of them was the .conf file. I still have it, and have attached it here. I will add I made several attempts at this, but I'm pretty sure this was the latest one before I gave it up. Hope it is of some help. - Don
