Description David S. Collier-Brown 2004-02-02 07:34:53 UTC
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 
unix client.
  I suggest it default to "on" on platforms which support
  A test for LD_PRELOAD is to check for a non-existant 
.so, thusly:
$ 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
.so file:
# LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libc.so /bin/ls
 Please not that the latter alone is not a sufficient test.

Comment 1 Tim Potter 2004-02-02 14:36:22 UTC
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.
Comment 2 David S. Collier-Brown 2004-02-03 04:52:36 UTC
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.

originally reported against 3.0aph24.  Bugzilla spring cleaning.  
Removing old alpha versions.

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