  1. kerberos includes and samba issues

    In trying to get the current samba 3.0.5 to work in our
    environment, I tried to compile --with-ads support. This
    complains that I don't have krb5.h installed. Although
    kerberos is supported in irix, I don't see this include
    file as part of the package. Am I missing something
    obvious or is there some more logical part of kerberos
    that I can install? Or do I have to maintain another
    package outside of the OS?

    I'm afraid you'll need to download the kerberos source from MIT.

    The source for the version you would have is here:

    http://web.mit.edu/kerberos/www/dist...krb5-1.3.1.tar

    This problem was reported in comp.sys.sgi.something a few months ago,
    however, the solution isn't as easy as one might think. IRIX actually
    uses 2 versions of kerberos, and finding a solution that would fit our
    build environment and avoids potential bugs would require some thought
    and effort. Given the simplicity of the workaround and it's relative
    priority to other more pressing issues, we simply haven't had the time
    to solve this one.

    I should think that you only need the header files during your
    compilation. You can still use the kerberos libraries that are shipped
    with IRIX.
