Re: samba is crashing right after it starts

It's complaining that it has no authentication method (e.g. password DB).  Have you set up any user accounts?  If not, as root user, try 'smbpasswd -a <your_regular_login_account_name>' and then start it up again ('/etc/rc.d/samba start').

Post changes to log file records, if any.

Re: samba is crashing right after it starts

I have removed

passdb backend = smbpasswd guest

from smb.conf and it is not crashing anymore.
