default program directories
I installed redhat 8 on my desktop computer. I have installed mandrake 7.1 and 8.1 on other computers and used samba on all of them. I then installed the updated samba from source code to the rh8 machine. My only problem is this. Why did it make multiple locations for smb.conf? It is in /etc/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.conf and /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf. I thought it always put that file in /etc/smb.conf. Can someone explain to me what the default directories are for program installs under linux? Is there a way to change this. The only reason I am asking is that even though the new latest samba install went to /usr/local/samba it is looking at the /etc/smb.conf and not the one at /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf.
