Hello,

 

When i bought my MBP in Mid-2011 I found my Mac to be a little unstable but because I was new to MacOS I thought that perhaps it was just me.  I have carried on now for over a year, two machine formats plus an upgrade to Lion (from Snow leopard) and I'm still having problems. 

 

I keep seeing;

 

Jul  5 11:03:12 tixylix com.apple.launchd[1] (org.samba.nmbd[1426]): posix_spawn("/opt/local/sbin/nmbd", ...): No such file or directory

Jul  5 11:03:12 tixylix com.apple.launchd[1] (org.samba.nmbd[1426]): Exited with code: 1

Jul  5 11:03:12 tixylix com.apple.launchd[1] (org.samba.nmbd): Throttling respawn: Will start in 10 seconds

 

Scrolling in my Console logs, could this be something to do with the cause of my problems?

 

Should I take it to my local Apple store and let them have a look?

 

Many thanks in advance.

    Ok - trying to help myself a little here and understand MacOS logs, I see in the console, under 'opendirectoryd.log';

    Please disregard my previous post, it's incorrect and nothing to do with my first point, it was just an LDAP authentication issue.

    Same problem- same errors in console.... just have NO idea what    posix_spawn("/opt/local/sbin/nmbd", ...): No such file or directory    means!

     

     

    Did you find any answers?

    Count me in too. Does anybody out there have an idea of why this Samba stuff is flooding my console?

    Nope, I formatted my machine to fix this problem.. Never did find the route cause.  The only thing I can think it was I compliled SAMBA on my machine so I some Active Directory stuff.. Perhaps i'm wrong but never the less, the format sorted it.  Running Mountain Badger now and all is well.
