    Samba "INTERNAL ERROR: Signal 6"


    I am running Samba 3.02a on Slackware 9.1. All was well for a few months until 4 days ago Samba started having a Panic. No new software has been installed in the past 3 weeks, server runs 24/7. I am rather new to Linux but do have a bit of UNIX admin. I have search the net to no avail for anything on this error. Could anyone in this form give any suggestions on what when wrong and how to fix it? I have set log level to debug 3, Config and log file below.

    try to use "testparm smb.conf"

    if the smb file is bad then testparm will give you a notice about it.

    If it hasn't gave an error, then compile a new version of samba. 3.0.4 or later? Don't know which one is the latest stable version

    Yes I have run "testparm smb.conf" without error, I stripped the config down to a minimum, again with no success. I guess my next step is to upgrade as you suggest.

    Thanks
