gzip -d samba-latest.tar.gz
gpg --recv-keys 0x6F33915B6568B7EA
gpg --verify samba-latest.tar.asc && tar -xf samba-latest.tar

There's also a git repository:

git clone git:// samba-git
cd samba-git


Building and installing Samba3:

git checkout -b stable origin/v3-6-stable
cd source3
./configure --prefix=/opt/samba3 --with-pam && make
sudo make install

For some reason, the resulting binaries are linked to a shared libtevent library, resulting in:

$ ldd /opt/samba3/sbin/smbd | grep not => not found

As a workaround, we could use LD_LIBRARY_PATH to use the newly compiled binaries, e.g.:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/samba3/lib /opt/samba3/bin/testparm /etc/samba/smb.conf


Samba4 uses waf for its build system:

sudo apt-get install python-dev                   # Debian, Ubuntu
sudo yum install python-devel                     # Fedora, SUSE
./configure --prefix=/opt/samba4 --with-pam --without-ad-dc
sudo make install
