A brief howto on installing Samba 4 alpha14 on OS X.

Dependencies

Install MacPorts using the instructions on macports.org. Once your MacPorts system is set up how you like it, type in the following command to install Samba 4 dependencies.

# port install python27 python_select gnutls readline talloc && python_select python27

Compiling Samba4

You can use Git as in general guide, or you may prefer to use releases:

$ curl http://download.samba.org/samba/ftp/samba4/samba-4.0.0alpha14.tar.gz -o samba-4.0.0alpha14.tar.gz
$ tar -xvjf samba-4.0.0alpha14.tar.gz
$ cd samba-4.0.0alpha14/source4
$ export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/local/lib/pkgconfig1
$ ./configure2
$ make
# make install
# ./setup/provision --realm=samdom.example.com --domain=SAMDOM --adminpass=SOMEPASSWORD --server-role='domain controller'3

Notes

  1. This was a hack to help autotools find talloc in MacPorts. TODO: Gather more info a build a bug report, if it is still required on alpha15.
  2. configure.developer make fails when building pam_winbind. TODO: Investigate and file a bug report.
