samba "Can't initialise locking module - exiting"


i can't seem to get my samba server to run, the services seem to start but smbstatus gives me:

Failed to open byte range locking database
ERROR: Failed to initialise locking database
Can't initialise locking module - exiting

i tried compiling and installing samba 3.0.2a again, but it didn't change anything. any help would be appreciated!

login to root and restart the service by using this command

Code:
$service samba restart  //restarting service
$redhat-config-samba   //samba share
may be works fine.........

i tried

$service samba restart

but it says unrecognized service, then i tried

$service smb restart

and it stopped and then restarted fine, running smbstatus gives me the same error as before.

redhat-config-samba runs the config program, which tells me everything is shared and working, which it's not...
