Description Paul Eggleton 2003-07-17 18:17:17 UTC

The culprit is the CONFIG variable in the /etc/init.d/winbind script, which is 
set as follows:


This is despite the configure option --with-configdir=/etc/samba being 
specified in the spec file for the RPM.

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