    Installed samba 4.1 successfully in redhat 6.5 but still 3.6 version

    Hi all,

    I copied the samba-4.1.9.tar.gz file to /usr/local & installed samba-4.1.9 manually in redhat 6.5 using "make install" but still showing the default old version 3.6.9-164.
    . Also tried restart smb but no luck.Please help.

    Thank you

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    I assume it had a "configure" script? The default is to install into /usr/local instead of into /usr, and since the default path for system stuff is in /usr, you still have the old 3.6.9 version on your system. You can either specify the --prefix=/usr option, since the default is /usr/local, or set your path to include /usr/local/bin before /usr/bin.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
