I'm building an updated samba (3.5.6) for an old 10.3 box (to run in

check if there are any additional options I should set/change to make sure
there are no conflicts with any other packages that may rely on the samba
being in any one particular place. I don't think there is any way to build an
rpm from the spec due to non-existent dependency packages.

From picking through the last 10.3 spec from discontinued/update it
looks like
the following will work:

Check the openSUSE Build Service repository network:samba:STABLE package
samba at
for the line defining CONFIGURE_OPTIONS

As these package source build for all SUSE products I expect it to work
with openSUSE 10.3 as well.

Please keep in mind openSUSE 10.3 isn't longer feed with security
updates. Cf.



Just a follow up. samba-3.5.6 rpms built fine on both 10.3 and 11.0
from the
spec file. The only file I had to find to meet dependencies was ctdb-devel
(rebuilt from a srpm). The rest of the packages are available in the
discontinued repos. Thanks again.
