Unable to authenticate users after Samba update

I updated CSWSamba from the testing catalog today, on a Solaris 10, Update 10 x86 server.
This caused authentication to the host specified in a "wins server" parameter to
stop working with "permission denied" errors, whereas prior to the update it was working.

I restored the following 2 files from a backup made before the update and
file access via Samba started working again:

    /opt/csw/sbin/amd64/smbd
    /opt/csw/sbin/pentium_pro/smbd

Before the update pkgutil showed

    CSWsamba                  3.6.25,REV=2016.02.08     3.6.25,REV=2016.04.17

(version number is 3.6.25 for both old and new versions).

I'm not a Samba expert.  Can anyone tell me what the problem might be?

I don't know what protocol Samba uses to talk to the domain controller
specified in the "wins server" parameter.  Could removal of SSL2 be the problem?

Will OpenSSL 1.0.1s be released?

Will the OpenSSL 1.0.1s package be released?

I noticed that OpenSSL 1.0.1s has blocking bugs.  Looks like there is some
concern that removal of SSL2 will break some things.

We don't need 1.0.1s, but the OpenSSL project has announced version 1.0.1t
to be released on May 3.  It has fixes for some high impact security bugs
so we hope to get that version soon after it is released.

CUPS: foomatic-rip file missing

Hello,

 

I’m still very new to CUPS !

But I have now installed all the CUPS software (I think !) onto my Solaris 10 branded zone.

I have created a printer thru the web interface.

 

But after I’ve issued a simple lp command, lpstat is telling me

File "/opt/csw/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip" not available

 

Sure enough, it ain’t there in    /opt/csw/lib/cups/filter

Has anyone any idea what it is that I’m still missing ?

 

Regards

I usually don't miss things BUT

I am being asked to patch samba on my Solaris SPARC box.
I am using one version down of smb from the CSW repository...
     # /opt/csw/sbin/smbd -V
     Version 3.6.14

I am looking and not finding a positive answer that *RIX is even at risk 
for this attack.
What I read mentions Windows only (or it seems that way to me).
My co-admins that do Windows only know windows.
I do not see a patch from CSW (or did I miss that too!)

All other recent exploits have clearly defined and ready patchs or fixes 
for the problems.

So thanks for any advice.

CUPS installation issue on Solaris 10 branded zone

Hi All,

 

I'm new to CUPS.

Trying to install and use on a Solaris 10 branded zone.

 

I followed the instructions including :-

pkgadd  -d  http://get.opencsw.org/now

then using pkgutil to create a package stream

etc

Then I set up a shell script to run each of the pkgadd comkmands in the specified order

 

All this seemed to go ok.

 

I have disabled the original Solaris lp cvonmmannds and now want to set up symlinks for the CUPS lp commands

BUT

I cannot find any lp type commands inside /opt/csw/cups/bin

 

I've run a pkginfo and get :-

pkginfo | grep -i cups

 

application CSWlibcups2                      libcups2 - CUPS libraries, libcups.so.2

application CSWlibcupsimage2                 libcupsimage2 - CUPS libraries, libcupsimage.so.2

utility     cups                             cups 1.4.4 SPARC 64bit Solaris 10

 

 

Am I missing some stuff ?

 

Please can you advise

Regards

Keith

Openssl Update

Hi,
I pushed the openssl update to unstable yesterday.
This disables sslv2 by default now.
This seems to cause all kind of funny software breakage.
If you hit a problem please let me know.
If it's not to much I tend to just rebuild those.
Otherwise will rollout a new version which enables sslv2 again.

librsvg pkg-config problem

Using pkg-config to get the libs for librsvg works:

  ~# /opt/csw/bin/pkg-config --libs librsvg-2.0
  -L/opt/csw/lib -lrsvg-2 -lm -lgio-2.0 -lgdk_pixbuf-2.0 -lcairo
-lgobject-2.0 -lglib-2.0 -lintl

However trying to get the cflags gives an error:

  ~# /opt/csw/bin/pkg-config --cflags librsvg-2.0
  sh: gnome-config: not found
  Package xproto was not found in the pkg-config search path.
  Perhaps you should add the directory containing `xproto.pc' to the
PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
  Package 'xproto', required by 'Xrender', not found

Is there an easy solution to this?

Connection rest by peer when running pkgutil -U

Can anyone help troubleshoot the following error I am getting when running pkgutil -U?

 

--08:37:51--  http://mirror.opencsw.org/opencsw/testing/sparc/5.10/catalog

  (try:20) => `/var/opt/csw/pkgutil/catalog.mirror.opencsw.org_opencsw_testing_sparc_5.10.tmp'

Connecting to mirror.opencsw.org[131.188.40.82]:80... connected.

HTTP request sent, awaiting response...

Read error (Connection reset by peer) in headers.

Giving up.

 

I can access the mirror and view contents from a Web browser so I don't believe it is firewall related, nor to my knowledge, should this site be blocked. I am also unable to do a curl on the address from a Linux host.

 

Andrew
