Description Robert R. Richter 2018-10-29 18:43:56 UTC
Compiling Samba with the Python-Use-Flag set, causes revdep-rebuild to compile samba again and again. Problem won't go away, after each rebuild of samba, revdep-rebuild wants to compile samba again.

The same behavior has been reported on the Funtoo-Forums. There, they suggest to compile samba without the python-use-flag. They are right, I've tested it without python -> works. Look at:

This problem still exists in samba-4.8.6 !!

Reproducible: Always

$ ldd /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/samba/ | grep found => not found

According to the build log "" was built, but not installed. It is probably a part of domain controller and only installed if USE=addc.
