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[1] (org.samba.nmbd[1426]): posix_spawn("/opt/local/sbin/nmbd", ...): No such file or directory

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

Jul  5 11:03:12 tixylix[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.

    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?
