View Full Version : startup hangs on samba winbind daemon

February 24th, 2009, 12:29 AM
I was having some issues getting an XP computer on my network to recognize my samba share and share files / printers. For some reason when I issued

$sudo /etc/init.d/samba start

It would act like it was starting up the samba daemon but actually would immediately shut it self down.

$sudo /etc/init.d/samba stop
complained about no process to kill.

After purge and re-installing + fiddling with my smb.conf I now somehow have broken my computer even more. Now if I try and start up with samba or winbind installed my computer hangs indefinitely trying to start up each of the respective daemons. The fix is to bootup in recovery-mode to netroot and to remove the respective packages. I have reverted back to the default smb.conf and I am still having this behavior. Any tips/suggestions/comments are welcome.

bump - guess I am the only one? looks like a re-install is on the horizon

[ OK ]
* Starting Samba daemons [ OK ]
mark@snowy 11:22 AM~ $ ps -A |grep smb

No smbd running just nmbd
