  1. [Samba] Official Samba builds for Ubuntu?

    Greetings-

    I am wondering if anyone from the Samba team would happen to have interest in creating official builds for Ubuntu?

    To add a twist, unfortunately I would not be fishing for 7.10 packages, but rather 7.04 as we ran into too many issues with 7.10 whereas 7.04 seems rock solid stable.

    Or, are there packages built of Samba releases for Ubuntu external to samba.org?

    Thanks,

    Michael,

    I believe Ubuntu has builds of Samba available through their
    repositories. Most of the tutorials you can find through a simple
    search will inform you to use apt-get to pull down samba if you don't
    already have it installed.

    Yes of course that is the way to get the official distro release.

    Ubuntu, like Debian, only issue security patches to their packages after a certain distro is released.

    I am fishing for a place to get the latest Samba versions specifically compiled / packaged for a version if Ubuntu instead of the former method.

    Upstream (ie the Samba team) has, IIRC, the project of keeping up with
    the maintenance of packages provided on samba.org for up-to-date Samba
    versions for Debian and Ubuntu stable releases (I guess, for Ubuntu,
    only for long-term support releases).

    Last time I saw discussion about this, Jerry Carter was in duty of
    this...but he's obviously busy with release management.

    We (Deiban/Ubuntu maintainers) hope to continue the work on Debian
    packages so that they are more and more easy to build on our stable
    releases. Actually, they are already, but some changes we do in our
    package may not be suitable with the point of view of the Samba Team
    (mostly file locations).

    Deeper discussions with Jerry (next SambaXP, Jerry, if you read me?)
    could help in having all this converging and make the work of
    producing packages for Debian/Ubuntu easier for the Samba Team.

    Greetings Christian-

    Thank you for your comments about the progress behind the scenes.

    I am sure you have heard it before, but there is interest in some sort of official builds of Samba from somewhere of Samba releases as they happen.

    I will try to be patient for this to happen. ;-)

    Thanks,

    Feisty comes with Samba 3.0.24.

    Unofficial packages of Samba 3.0.26a for Feisty and 3.0.28 for Gutsy
    are available in my PPA:
    http://launchpad.net/~pgquiles/+archive

    Unofficial 3.0.28 packages for Feisty will be available in a couple of
    hours there, too.

    Packages of the latest Samba for the latest Ubuntu-stable (Gutsy, as
    of now) are usually available in my PPA. Most times they are just
    backports of the latest Ubuntu-unstable package to Ubuntu-stable but
    sometimes I'm ahead of Ubuntu-unstable (i. e. they may eat your
    computer and burn your house :-)

    Thank you Pau! Exactly what I was fishing for.
