    How to Install Samba into Slackware 10.1


    Hi, I am a Linux newbie and decided to try out Slackare 10.1.
    Did a full installation.
    I want to setup samba. Although, I did a full installation, it still says that
    Samba is not installed.

    I have downloaded the latest samba RPM from samba.org.

    How do I install the new samba into the Slackware 10.1??

    Any help is very much appreciated?


    Thks

    if you did a full install then samba is there look in /etc/samba
    if for some reason you don't have samba try and find a source instead of a rpm look for a .tgz or tar.gz file
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    no point using the source

    use the slackware cd and installpkg *samba* or download the samba package from the slackware FTP,

    then 'installpkg *samba*.tgz

    setup your /etc/samba/smb.conf for your shares, use 'testparm' to check its a valid config

    then start samba with /etc/rc.d/rc.samba start

    if it is not executable make it so with "chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.samba"

    and it will start on boot,
