Hi,

I have emerged samba, but when I try to start it using the command /etc.init.d/samba start

I get the following output:
Code:
samba           | * Caching service dependencies ...                      [ ok ]
samba           | * samba -> start: smbd ...
samba           | * start-stop-daemon: failed to start `/usr/sbin/smbd'   [ !! ]
samba           | * samba -> start: nmbd ...
samba           | * start-stop-daemon: failed to start `/usr/sbin/nmbd'   [ !! ]
samba           | * Error: starting services (see system logs)
samba           | * samba -> stop: smbd ...
samba           | * start-stop-daemon: no matching processes found        [ ok ]
samba           | * samba -> stop: nmbd ...
