846Re: Samba-3.0.9 binaries for Linkstation (README)
- Jan 4, 2005I just noticed that the /var/run/smbd.pid file is missing. So I
tried creating one with the PID od the deamon and it was able to
shutdown from the webserver script, but the button still did not
work. When I booted it up again, the file was missing yet again.
Then I tried "find / -name smbd.pid -print" and found it
in /usr/local/samba/var/locks/smbd.pid I confirmed the PID
with "ps -A" although I also did find another two more smbd
I thought that was compiled to go into the /var/run/ directory?
