Getting ACL support working in SAMBA


I have ACL support for slackware working with the 2.6.10 kernel. The problem is now that I need ACL support in SAMBA. I modified the 'samba.SlackBuild' in the samba source directory from the slackware distribution and changed '--with-acl-support=no' to '--with-acl-support'.

The configure script fails if I read the configure.log. Basically the line that errors is:
Code:
conftest.c:109:21: sys/acl.h: No such file or directory
I have found some hits in google that seem to talk about a patched coreutils package with ACL support and then reinstalling ACL and ATTR, but they did not describe the process, only that they had problems.

Is there anyone that has done this or know of somewhere this process is documented?

(This is for Slackware 10.1)

Yes, those are the links I found through Google . The first one is more applicable. The problem is that I am not aware of where the patches or tar.gz files that the author refers to are located.

Damn, those files are really hidden
I went to http://acl.bestbits.at/download.html and it said that now some files (acl and attrb) were shared with xfs project, so I went to their site (it's linked from acl) and on that site's download page I found this:
ftp://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/downl...test/cmd_tars/

Okay, got this working with the slackware sources (didn't want to throw more variables into the mix than I had too). The main problem is that I didn't have the dev install for XFS. I went into the xfs source folder and ran the build script (which failed, but got far enough). Then I went into each of the source subfolders in /tmp/xfs-sources and ran "make install-dev". Once that was done, I was able to run the Samba source build (samba.SlackBuild) modified with the "--with-acl-support" enabled.

After that, everything seems to be working now.
