Samba: Problem after 3.0.9 upgrade
Hey, my first post! To start, thanks for all the great info I've found on this site. I installed Slackware on an old laptop a few months ago, my first time using Linux, and I'm hooked! I've learned more in 2 months fiddling with Linux than years on Windows. I love it. My wife doesn't see me as much anymore though.
So, obviously I'm completely new, and I have a problem. I recently upgraded Samba from 3.0.7 to 3.0.9 and an error immediately crept up. First, samba refused to start at boot and a manual start produced this:
ERROR: Could not determine network interfaces, you must use a interfaces config line
I updated my smb.conf file with interfaces = eth0 192.168.2.16. That allowed samba to start but I still get "WARNING: no network interfaces found" in the log and when I use smbclient. It chews a few seconds and eventually I can access my shares Ok, also my fstab entry mounts Ok too, but I always get this warning in the log.
Everything worked fine before the upgrade. Any ideas what I broke?
My [global] smb.conf file:
workgroup = THECOMPLEX
server string = Samba Server
security = user
hosts allow = 192.168.2. 127.
load printers = yes
log file = /var/log/samba.%m
max log size = 300
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
interfaces = eth0 192.168.2.16
