View Full Version : [ubuntu] Intrepid with Samba/Swat version mismatch

February 9th, 2009, 10:28 PM
I am trying to install SWAT with my Samba version 2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3.5~ppa1 on my Intrepid system. The Synaptic Package Manager has SWAT at version 2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3.4.

When I try to install using Synaptic, after marking for installation I get the following error message: "swat: Depends: samba (=2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3.4) but 2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3.5~ppa1 is to be installed."

I have tried apt-get with similar results. How can I fix this?

Have you tried searching and highlighting samba in Synaptic then going to Package>Force Version, then see if you can change the samba version to (=2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3.4)

If I try to force the version of "Samba" I do not get an "apply" button. If I then also force the version of "samba-common" there are dependency removals including "smbclient" and "smbfs". I suppose I could mark Samba for complete removal and start again. But ...

I don't want to lose this sort-of working Samba. Do you know of another tool beside SWAT for configuring Samba?
