I am running CentOS 4.4 server. I am trying to install Samba on it. I am very new to Linux. I have downloaded samba-3.0.23d.tar.gz to . I ran the following command in hopes to install the package: tar -xvzf samba-3.0.23d.tar.gz and when I do a ls I show the orignal package and now samba-3.2.23.d (blue letters).
After doing that I did the following: cd .. cd etc cd init.d and I do not show samba there and that is where I was told it was supposed to be in order to use nano and edit what I needed to.
Can any one offer any help?
you only unpacked the samba tar.gz, you didn't install it.
Unless there is a specific reason you are wanting to install from source, you will probably be better off doing
#yum install samba
