    Note that BDB is now available from the contrib repository, which is a lot easier.

    Neatatalk 2.0.4 appears to have resolved some issues, I only needed:

    ./configure –without-pam

    I tried it with PAM (default) and configure completed with a bunch or warnings about PAM not being there.

    Would someone with more SMF experience than I care to look at converting the init.d script to the required XML and shell so that SMF will restart the deamons in case of problem?

    You might want to suggest people set up a stand-alone setup of BDB, so if the shared BDB on the system is updated, your Netatalk installation isn’t affected. Another thing that I have found useful is to put the BDB databases on a different volume than the Natatalk share, that way if your share runs out of space, your BDB doesn’t become corrupted. The Netatalk manual is a bit tedious to read, but it contains a ton of very useful info.

  6. Building and authenticating with PAM isn’t a problem now, it seems. This worked fine for me:

    $ cd work/netatalk/
    $ wget
    $ tar xjf netatalk-2.0.5.tar.bz2
    $ cd netatalk-2.0.5
    $ ./configure –with-pam=/usr/lib/security
    $ make -j4
    $ pfexec make install

    I verified that PAM was being used via:

    Verified PAM used this way:

    add “auth.debug/var/adm/authlog” to /etc/syslog.conf

    # touch /etc/pam_debug
    # touch /var/adm/authlog
    # svcadm restart system-log

    Mount AFP volume

    Look at /var/adm/authlog

    To make afp work with osx 10.7, you must support dhx2 as well for the password encryption in afpd.conf as well:

    – -transall -uamlist, -nosavepassword
