Hi experts,

How do I download and install SAMBA 3.0.x on Sarge via a pre-compiled binary, that has --with-acl-support?

I have already modified /etc/apt/sources-list to say:
    deb sarge samba

then, apt-get update
then, apt-get install samba

but I must have the --with-acl-support enabled. How do I do that? Or even test for it?

    hi nedvis,

    yes, i've read those too. I'm looking for a debian package of samba 3 with acl support. Maybe an "unofficial package" somewhere?

    I figured this out. I wasn't using the 2.6 kernel so my ACLs weren't working correctly. I ended up typing expert26 at the debian prompt and problem solved.
