I have a fresh CentOS 5.2 server that I am just starting to customize,
it is very close to stock.
This morning I ran yum update:
kernel-xen i686 2.6.18-92.1.6.el5 updates 15 M
samba i386 3.0.28-1.el5_2.1 updates 16 M
samba-client i386 3.0.28-1.el5_2.1 updates 4.9 M
samba-common i386 3.0.28-1.el5_2.1 updates 8.7 M
After rebooting, Samba would not start, running 'service smb start'
simply hangs forever, nothing in the logs I could find and I could see
from ps that smbd was never forking to release the start script.
I discovered that if I boot using the previous kernel
2.6.18-92.1.1.el5xen all is well.
I did try regressing samba by uninstalling and then installing
disabling the updates repo to no avail, the older version (1.1) of
Samba was installed when I tried booting the older kernel, which did
work, as well as the updated version (1.6).
