Last night I had samba working perfectly on my two linux machines - One server (with all the samba shares) and my desktop (which had access to my server samba shares). Both run Gentoo.
At this point everything worked perfectly. I have a very basic (just shares, not printing) smb.conf file.
Later on that night, I installed openSSL (because I thought I needed it for a program but maybe I shouldn't have installed it so hastily). Anyway, I did the usual "emerge openssl" and everything seemed fine.
Then I tried to start samba on my server:
and was returned the following
* starting samba [!!]
and samba didn't start.
Therefore, I unmerged openssl:
#emerge -C openssl
in the hope that samba might work, but I got exactly the same response.
I have yet to reboot the server (maybe that will fix it) because I don't want too loose uptime
Therefore, I'm asking if anyone knows that I need to do to get this working again?
I'm assuming that it was openssl which caused this problem. The only other thing i installed last night (to the best of my recollection) was teepeedee (a micro webserver - this is what I thought I needed openSSL for). However, I think that samba was still working fine after i installed teepeedee and before i installed openssl.
Could someone please shed some light ont his for me? I see in smb.conf there is a bit about ssl, but i haven't enabled that.
