Thanks for the bug report. This patch has made it in to lucid. This would be a good candidate for an SRU.

Statement of Impact: The Samba shipped with karmic was shipped with a bug that prevented users to download printer drivers from a PDC.

How this has been resolved: This bug has been described in https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6568 and has been fixed upstream in Samba and for lucid. I have backported this patch for Karmic.

How to reproduce:

1. Setup a samba PDC.
2. Setup Samba for printer driver downloads:


There should not be any regressions with this patch.

If you have any questions please let me know.

Straightforward patch, definitely looks SRU-worthy. ACK from ubuntu-sru.

Chuck, how do you want to handle this vs #462172? One after the other or both at the same time?

Accepted samba into karmic-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!
