The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 1376
Space in directory name prevents build after compile
Last modified: 2006-04-08 22:49:18 UTC
Mac OS X has a solid UNIX background and as such mounts all HDD as well as CD and external drives
under a directory called Volumes. For usability in the GUI many drive names have spaces in them.
Instead of representing the space as "¥ " the space is represented as " " which is incorrect and causes
the build to be unable to proceed. I know this to be the case on several normal Linux and *BSD
distributions as well. This is minor because anyone who would be building should have enough
knowledge to use a symbolic link to get around the issue anyway.
Can you post some output to illustrate the problem?

Please retest against a current release and reopen if the issue still exists.
