Arch Linux. A little problem since the update from 4.4 to 4.5 yesterday (9/9/16). The samba server will not start now. I have tried downgrading back to 4.4, but then a whole different set of problems occur. I have renamed my smb.conf to smb.conf.old and used the default conf with my own paths (homes and Shares). Various log and test files copied to attachment.

Comment 2 Patrick Houle 2016-09-10 22:01:58 UTC
It was a package pulled in and updated the same day, tevent-0.9.30. Downgrading to 0.9.29 fixed the issue.
