The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 7268
smbclient Segfaulting when connecting to a share
Last modified: 2010-05-27 05:19:36 UTC
I have two machines, a server and a client. The server has been running for a few years with no issues and the share is an unsecured share (doesn't use authentication). I've had other computers connect and manage files with no issues. The client is a new os install and just installed Samba.
On the client, if I do a list on the server, it prompts for a password (which I've never had to do), I leave it blank and I get the list of shares. When I connect to a share, it prompts for the password again and then segfaults.
Just to try, when I connect through Nautilus, it lists the server, but generates an error when I mount the share.
I am attaching the output of strace when i run the connection.
I am running ArchLinux.

strace output of smbclient connection
Can you post the smb.conf of the server please? Bonus would be to run the crashing smbclient under valgrind and post the output.
Can you try https://bugzilla.samba.org/attachment.cgi?id=5515, a patch I uploaded for 7250? I'm not 100% sure this is the same, but it is definitely worth a try.
