Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hi, I use RedHat 7.3 and XFS 1.1. I installed the the packets from the additional RedHat-Cd for XFS. Now I tried to install Samba 2.2.5. The problem is when I start ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/samba-2.2.5 --with-acl-support at the end I get a message, that Samba use no acls because it has a problem with -lacl.
This problem does look somewhat similar to what I once encountered in another program. If libacl.so got installed by samba, then the problem is due to its make-scripts, if not, you can fix it probably easily. \
First, check whether the file libacl.so exists.... and if it does, run ldconfig, go to the samba again and do a make distclean, before you restart.
Hi, thanks for your tips. I tried it (I found the libacl.so and started ldconfig -v), but I got the same errors. I checked the config.log again and saw that it checks a lot of __ - files and nearly everyone returns "no", also the __acl.
I run ./configure as normal user, should I try it as root? I use samba 2.2.5, should I use an older version?
One thing I can think of:
In which folder is the libacl.so located?
If it is not in /lib or in /usr/lib or in /usr/local/lib (I mean, directly in this folder. Not in a subdirectory), there might be a missing symbolic link to it. If it is i.e. in /usr/lib/libacl/libacl.so, you would have to create a link to it in /usr/lib in order to find it.
./configure running as normal user is not a problem.
And very important. If you try again, do a make distclean.
