On Solaris, the --with-smbwrapper should be on by default.
Leaving this out convinces people that there are no
non-ftp-like Unix clients, just smbclient Even one of
our distinguished engineers at Sun just released a **public**
blueprints article that erroniously claimed that there was no
I suggest it default to "on" on platforms which support
A test for LD_PRELOAD is to check for a non-existant
$ LD_PRELOAD=/nowhere/atoll.so /bin/ls
ld.so.1: /bin/ls: fatal: /nowhere/atoll.so: open failed: No such file or directory
Once you know that LD_PRELOAD is supported, an optional
test that should succeed is to load an existing, harmless
# LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libc.so /bin/ls
Please not that the latter alone is not a sufficient test.
Having a working LD_PRELOAD isn't necessarily an indication that smbwrapper is
going to work. It's more a function of whether your C library supports the
trick smbwrapper uses to overload the file i/o library calls.
I think perhaps it should be enabled by default by OS name and version.
I agree: it is supported and tested by myself
at least, on all Solarii after 2.6. It should
work on everything save H-P. --dave
i'll enable it for solaris, but someon needs to maintain it.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
