Special Forums Windows & DOS: Issues & Discussions Mounting a windows share on AIX Post 19418 by szahir1 on Thursday 11th of April 2002 06:13:44 AM

I downloaded Samba version 2.2.3a extracted it and ran the 'configure' and 'make' scripts.

when running 'configure' there are a couple of options that are of interest (well, I think so),

--with-smbwrapper and
--with-smbmount

the smbmount option just bombs out telling me I can only use it on Linux and the smbwrapper option gives the following:

checking whether to use smbwrapper... yes
No syscall() -- disabling smbwrapper and smbsh

and consequently neither are installed.

The compiler is called 'C for AIX Compiler, Version 5' and the output messages from the 'configure' script include the line

gcc = yes

so I'm not really sure whats going on!

NAME
autoupdate2.13 - updates an old configure.in file to version 2 SYNOPSIS
autoconf2.13 [ --help | -h ] [ --macrodir=dir | -m dir ] [ --version ] DESCRIPTION
The autoupdate2.13 program updates a configure.in file that calls Autoconf macros by their old names to use the current macro names. In version 2 of Autoconf, most of the macros were renamed to use a more uniform and descriptive naming scheme. Although the old names still work , you can make your configure.in files more readable and make it easier to use the current Autoconf documentation if you update them to use the new macro names. If given no arguments, autoupdate2.13 updates configure.in, backing up the original version with the suffix ~ (or the value of the environment variable SIMPLE_BACKUP_SUFFIX, if that is set). If you give autoupdate2.13 an argument, it reads that file instead of configure.in and writes the updated file to the standard output. autoconf2.13 accepts the following options: --help -h Print a summary of the command line options and exit. --macrodir=DIR -m DIR Look for the installed macro files in directory DIR. You can also set the AC_MACRODIR environment variable to a directory; this option overrides the environment variable. --version Print the version number of Autoconf and exit. SEE ALSO
