Description DanB 2007-06-04 02:12:37 UTC
winbindd silently fails to start because it tries to unlink /var/run/samba/winbindd_cache.tdb which does not exist

Creating the file by hand solves the problem until the next restart


stat64("/var/run/samba", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=576, ...}) = 0
unlink("/var/run/samba/winbindd_cache.tdb") = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat64("/var/run/samba", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=576, ...}) = 0
exit_group(1)                           = ?

This is a packaging problem, it was present both in the Ubuntu packages and my debian packages on samba.org, and was caused by a bug in the fhs.patch made originally by debian developers.

I fixed my packages and from my analysis this shouldn't happen in vanilla samba.
Closing the bug, reopen if there are still problems.
