I recently updated my samba package (most likely as part of a
"make update" in elsewhere in my tree), and I got screwed because
a) the config location changed from /etc/samba
b) a default config file was installed into
/usr/pkg/etc/samba/smb.conf, which /etc/rc.d/samba
then uses as the config file for samba.
This meant I was now running an smb server on my system with a different
(less restrictive) configuration file than my local configuration file.
I Am Not Amused.
I can cope with the change of location of the config file; I just
copy files around in my configuration management tree and push out
What I find unacceptable is that the samba package installed a
/usr/pkg/etc/samba/smb.conf on my system because it didn't
find one there in the first place, and therefore samba will
now start up with what is effectively a "sample" config file.
Package people: please fix.
(A grumpy) Luke.
