Compiling 3.0.28 on Fedora 8 with --enable-fam option, vfs_notify_fam module wasn't compiled. I have fam lib installed:
configure:44069: checking for FAMOpen2 in -lfam
configure:44128: result: yes
I guess is missed this code on configure file:
echo "$as_me:$LINENO: checking how to build vfs_notify_fam" >&5
echo $ECHO_N "checking how to build vfs_notify_fam... $ECHO_C" >&6
if test "$MODULE_vfs_notify_fam"; then
elif test "$MODULE_vfs" -a "$MODULE_DEFAULT_vfs_notify_fam"; then
This code above was included on 3.2.0pre2
Assigning to idra. The configure.in snippets regarding notify_fam are absolutely equivalent in v3-0-test and v3-2-test, and I don't have fc8 around to test this.
it works on SuSE and BSD, I can't tell about Red Hat. But Linux should not require fam support anyway as inotify is superior and available since a while. I'm closing this bug as it seems to be generic problem with Samba and FAM.
