I have installed a new server with mandriva 2007 free edition, with
samba 3.0.23d on it.
It is good but a new nmbd appears every 5 minutes and they don't die
when I stop samba.

So, I compiled samba 3.0.24 and ... idem.

This is not my first install, on my other servers they're only 2 nmbd.

With this install, after one day, I have more than 250 daemons, it is
the hell !

What que c'est que ša ?

Do you know this problem ?

Merci, Bruno
