Maybe I'm wrong, but there is no official Ubuntu package of Samba 3.5 in repositories yet.

You have two options:
1. Wait for official package
2. Compile new samba Yourself
3. Use untrusted sources

If waiting or compiling isn't solution (time is money :) ) then you could use untrusted repository.

At first I will write big warning to not be responsible if something happen with Your system :) :

Then check Your Ubuntu version.
This package is designed for Ubuntu 9.10.

If everything is ok then prepare 3 easy steps:
1. Add repository:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:polslinux/ppa

2. Update package list:
sudo apt-get update

3. Then upgrade samba:
sudo apt-get upgrade samba

Thats all.

Repository info:

I'm finding this same "problem": Ubuntu 10.04 server comes with samba 3.4, and I'd like to upgrade to 3.5.3, and can't find it in a repository. I've tried adding the suggested one above with additional info from, but Synaptic won't "find" it--I haven't tried the manual add yet.

Is there some reason Ubuntu doesn't make this update available as a pkg in a regular repository? Is there some problem with it and 10.04 Server?


samba, upgrade
