= Samba 4 Uninstallation =
I've completed also some work to fix up the uninstallation in SAMBA 4. So it should be possible to remove cleanly binaries, headers, libraries etc..
I haven't provided a repository for this, so I link to the patch: [https://bugzilla.samba.org/attachment.cgi?id=3567&action=view here]
It comprehends:
* Makefile: Fix up variable names and remove most of the installation/uninstallation targets
* templates.mk: Add here most of the installation/uninstallation targets and handle the uninstallation completely there.
* Conclusion: The installation scripts under "source/script" are needed as before, but the uninstallation ones aren't anymore.
* Unused targets like "swat2" are removed.
Annotation: This [https://bugzilla.samba.org/attachment.cgi?id=3552 patch] (installlib.sh) is needed to fix up the library installation. It should be applied before the first one.
= Registry =
Over the summer 2008 I've improved and fixed up the registry backend of SAMBA 4. Here a short overview of what I did:
== Registry client ==
GIT repository: git://repo.or.cz/Samba/mdw.git Branch: "v4-0-regClient" - [http://repo.or.cz/w/Samba/mdw.git?a=log;h=refs/heads/v4-0-regClient GITWEB]
Main issues:
* Major fixes in the RPC client (tries to be compatible with the Windows Registry client libs)
* Improvements and fixups in the patchfile library
* Some enhancements in "regshell"
* Fixup's in two torture tests related to the registry
== Registry server ==
GIT repository: git://repo.or.cz/Samba/mdw.git Branch: "v4-0-regServer" - [http://repo.or.cz/w/Samba/mdw.git?a=log;h=refs/heads/v4-0-regServer GITWEB]
Main fixups:
* Compatibility with Windows Registry Editor (regedit) - in my case Windows 2000 - and SAMBA 4 Registry client library
* Support empty values of REG_SZ (string) type (LDB backend)
* Introduce REG_BINARY type variables (LDB backend)
* Introduce the default attribute (LDB backend)
=== Feedback ===
* Maybe left to do: torture tests
