Pnethood versus lameSMBxplorer

For those who say that Pnethood works for them, lameSMBxplorer doesn't, or vice-versa, I have put both into Quirky/Wary.

The Pnethood package by HairyWill is '' and has a bugfix provided by shinobar awhile back. Forum thread:

Oh yeah, here is shinobar's patch that I applied:

lameSMBxplorer by Patriot:

...note that I have not included the "addon" package 'lameSMBqmount'.

After playing with both, maybe the Samba-user guys can decide which one is best, or at least which should be developed into the future.

samba pie binaries
I recompiled Samba not too long ago and noticed issues similar to git (compiling several binaries against included static libraries) except Samba is much worse - it defaults to a position independent executable which makes it even larger.

Since we are only using a select few of the binaries, my hack to use shared libraries didn't make a big difference overall, but compiling non-PIE with -fdata-sections -ffunction-sections -Wl,--gc-sections nearly cut the size in half without any other modifications.

I posted the binaries at the lameSMB thread
