ok so i managed to get M4 and autoconf working but im still not out of the woods lol

coz now i need Python and that said i needed gmake

after installing gmake and trying to compile Python it says:
gmake: *** virtual memory exhausted.  Stop.

so yeah...think im going to have to set up this server from fresh install coz it doesn't have enough swap file >.<

all this playing around just to get samba working lol

hi Maxlor

i simply ran pkg_add wget-1.11.tgz but im guessing netbsd cant find that file so i went on the net and downloaded wget source and i managed to install that^^

now im working on samba problem is...

samba wants me to install autoconf:
"./autogen.sh: need autoconf 2.53 or later to build samba from git"

and autoconf wants me to install GNU M4: (whatever that is lol)
"GNU M4 1.4.6 or later is required; 1.4.14 is recommended"

so yeah its sending me around the world and back

i'll have to try again tomorrow though too tired right now..

and thanks Maxlor for your fast reply smile

faced with a few problems..

tried installing samba from source long ago but i never managed to get it working and i haven't worked on unix in a long time so here goes my newbie question >.<

when i try to install wget i get this error:
pkg_add: no pkg found for 'wget-1.11.tgz', sorry.

the reason why i need wget, is so i can use it to download the samba source files lol

can anyone help me get wget and samba installed on my server thanks big_smile

hello everyone im new here and althought i've had netbsd installed for quite some time im still not an expert yet lol

but im currently studying computing at uni and we recently did a unit on unix so i thought its time to brush up on my skills and get my server back into gear!

so yeah just wanted to introduce myself and a heads up to all the gurus out there coz i will be asking lots and lots of questions^^

oh and the reason why i chose netbsd is because it seems to work really well with my systems and i heard lots of positive comments about it...  i was also considering openbsd and freebsd but the fact that netbsd is just clean and fits in 1 disk really did it for me.

anyways im here to learn and help where possible.  i'm interseted in doing as many cool things as possible on my server and to really get it up and running and pretty much just getting as much use out of it as i possibly can.  hope i've come to the right place for all that smile

oh and i forgot to introduce myself, it's Megan <3
