Subject description: The samba server will neither start nor stop anymore, from previously working state
 

I recently installed Bionicpup64 to a USB stick, for use with an intel Celeron notebook. It is otherwise working fine.

The vanilla pre-installed samba server, set up using Samba Simple Management worked fine for several days. Today it did not work, either via GUI or CLI. The share does not load, nor is it seen from the LAN anymore. Hitting the big red button in SSM does nothing. It remains red.

smbd restart and smbstatus both return the following:
Code:
symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libsmbd-base-samba4.so: undefined symbol: FAMNoExists


More info:
Quote:
root# nmblookup -S __SAMBA__
x.x.x.x __SAMBA__<00>
Looking up status of x.x.x.x
PUPPYPC1377 <00> - B <ACTIVE>

..__MSBROWSE__. <01> - <GROUP> B <ACTIVE>
WORKGROUP <00> - <GROUP> B <ACTIVE>
WORKGROUP <1d> - B <ACTIVE>
WORKGROUP <1e> - <GROUP> B <ACTIVE>


SSM "Test" button pulls the following from /etc/smb.conf:
Quote:
Load smb config files from /tmp/smb.conf
rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384)
Processing section "[puppyshare]"
Processing section "[printers]"
Loaded services file OK.
Server role: ROLE_STANDALONE

# Global parameters

map to guest = Bad Password
printcap name = cups

server string = Puppy Samba Server
idmap config * : backend = tdb


[puppyshare]
path = /mnt/home
read only = No


[printers]
browseable = No
comment = All Printers
guest ok = Yes
path = /var/spool/samba
printable = Yes

Ok
Ok


As I can't return a version from CLI... PPM installed packages under "samba" search:
Quote:
libnss-winbind_4.7.6+dfsg
libwbclient0_4.7.6+dfsg
nautilus-share_0.7.3
python-samba_4.7.6+dfsg
samba_4.7.6+dfsg
samba-common_4.7.6+dfsg
samba-common-bin_4.7.6+dfsg
samba-dsdb-modules_4.7.6+dfsg
samba-libs_4.7.6+dfsg
samba-vfs-modules_4.7.6+dfsg
samba-testsuite_4.7.6+dfsg
vlc-plugin-samba_3.0.8


PPM also warns me in a popup:
Quote:
Found package Installed package
samba_4.7.6+dfsg samba-4.8.0-x86_64_bionic

I do not know what this portends; perhaps I installed 4.7.6 underneath the inbuilt 4.8?

Samba Simple Management GUI is crashing now occasionally. It won't restart til I reboot.

Everything besides Samba seems fine.

Should I be able to install the Samba4 Basic .pet as described here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=853217#853217
which libraries and packages ought I remove from PPM repo? Or should I?

I'd greatly appreciate any help with this, where to proceed next. I am not very knowledgable about this nor have much experience with Arch/Puppy. I have several days worth of effort on this install already so would rather not reinstall the Puppy. Please help me avoid a tearful wasted week and more "yak shaving"

Thanks!

hi LittleMissMOSFET,

i've had this before open the package manager and uninstall libfam0.

before you uninstall it could you look down the uninstall list and try to see what application that you installed that brought it in so that i can try to fix it. just follow downwards from libfam0 until you come to an application that you've installed as that is what probably brought it in.

cheers

phil

Hello Phil,

Well, I’ll be... That solved it, and didn’t even have to reboot. Thank you so very much!

What about that library gets in the way of samba? I’d like to know more about how this works... Where could I look up such error messages for more info next time?

It is hard to tell which programme in PPM might have done so. Is there a log txt I could check? I’m guessing it was freetuxtv? I had just installed several fun “Tux” things.

hi LittleMissMOSFET,

i had this problem just a few days ago so it was fresh in my mind.
various logs for trouble shooting can be found in /var/log for samba, also Xorg.0.log for xorg and messages for a kernel related log also /tmp/xerrs/log shows various app and system messages.

as for the FAMNoExists error, i just did a bit of googling for the solution. possibly libfam0 needs to be installed when compiling samba to stop there being issues when it gets installed.

In /root/.packages (hidden directory)

It will have a file for each program you have installed.
If you left click on the file.
It will list everything that the programs install package installed and tell you where it was placed in the file system.


Example:
Yapi installer pet package installed what.
Note:
It kind of brakes it down to show what it did.
Notice the first 3 lines.
/usr/
/usr/sbin/
/usr/sbin/yapi
First went to /usr/, than to /usr/sbin/, and put the yapi exec file in /usr/sbin/
