samba working, then installed openSSL and not samba not working


Hey.

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:

#/etc/init.d/samba start

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.

thanks

max log size = 0

#PASSWORDS

*passwd:*all*authentication*tokens*updated*successfully*

#OTHER

dns proxy = no

#SHARES

Ok, here is some more information:

finally, something has appearing in my /var/log/samba/log.smbd file:
"
[2004/05/17 18:29:32, 0] smbd/server.c:main(835)
standard input is not a socket, assuming -D option
"

I'm googling around, but if anyone has had this before, do tell me.

FIXED!!

I guess that when I unmerged the openssl, it took some things with it. I simply reinstalled samba, and it is all working.

Plus, I saved my uptime
