Description Debian samba package maintainers (PUBLIC MAILING LIST) 2008-01-13 01:15:51 UTC
From our user:

This is a bit pedantic, but when I was studying the smb.conf file, this
seemed odd, so I went to verify it. It seems like an easy fix to clarify
this to save others the trouble:

The comment for max log size says "Kb". It should say "KiB" or at least
"KB", as it's in bytes, not bits. I'm attaching a patch which shows the
change. It would probably make sense to change the value from 1000 to
1024, which would make it an even 1 MiB. It seems odd to have a power of
ten value for a field that's in a power of two units.

Also, I found the "Put a capping" wording awkward, so this patch changes
that as well.

Proposed patch

This patch does not apply to the XML source but it should be enough to give an idea of the proposed changes

I can't find any of these phrases in the smb.conf manpage. Are you sure this bug still exists in 3.2?
Comment 3 Jelmer Vernooij 2008-01-21 06:18:56 UTC
