I’m not sure wich list i should contact or ask for help for my problem so i hope there’s no hard feelings.
I am about to install samba with apt-get install samba and getting the following error:
apt-get install samba
Building dependency tree... Done
samba is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
2 not fully installed or removed.
Need to get 0B of archives.
After unpacking 0B of additional disk space will be used.
Setting up samba (3.0.22-1) ...
Starting Samba daemons: nmbd failed!
invoke-rc.d: initscript samba, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing samba (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of swat:
swat depends on samba (= 3.0.22-1); however:
Package samba is not configured yet.
dpkg: error processing swat (--configure):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
It’s the bolded lines that disturbes me because I don’t know whats wrong with it.
I’ve tried to remove samba with apt-get remove samba, and dpkg –purge samba.
I have also tried to run dpkg-reconfigure samba, but nothing seems to work.
I am very thankful if u would give me a solution that would solve my problem.
Debian r3.2 is installed on the machine and using the ‘testing’ version.
