Under Construction. Right now, this page is a short list of notes.


  • MacPorts
  • Binaries...

We may need more or less ports. Will test on a fresh install. Wget is not a dependency of Samba4

sudo port install python26 python_select gnutls readline talloc wget

Compiling Samba4

You can use the Git instructions as in the general guide, or

tar -xvjf samba-4.0.0alpha14.tar.gz
cd samba-4.0.0alpha14/source4
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/local/lib/pkgconfig
sudo make install
python_select python26
./setup/provision --domain=SAMDOM --adminpass=SOMEPASSWORD --server-role='domain controller'
