Samba won't install - my bad
 
Hello,

I would appreciate help on the following problem I have.

At some point I removed Samba from my SID, and thinking that I could reinstall everything no problem, must have deleted /etc/smb.conf (and God knows what else, stoopid me!).

I'm trying now to reinstall samba, but aptitude fails when trying to configure/open /etc/smb.conf. Seems like this file is _not_ reinstalled when installing samba.

FYI, even dpkg -P samba failed.

I could of course copy manually the file from somewhere on the web, but am not sure if this is the only file that's missing, that is, the only file that samba does not install by default.

Can you please help me? It's a pain having to reinstall SID for this issue. :-(

TiA

I would look and see if samba doesnt have a sample config somewhere else laying around. If not getting one from somewhere else and reconfiguring it for your needs should work.

Copied a samba.conf file from an ubuntu distro I have. Seems to be working. Thx!
