Winbind in EOS


for a game I wanted to play I get the following error message:

00f4:err:winediag:check_version ntlm_auth was not found or is outdated. Make sure that ntlm_auth >= 3.0.25 is in your path. Usually, you can find it in the winbind package of your distribution.

It seems that I would need to install the winbind package, and the package exists for most distributions. However, I cannot seem to find it for EOS:

[dromundkaas@Pure ~]$ yay winbind
no packages match search
[dromundkaas@Pure ~]$ 

So my question is twofold:

  1. Which package contains what I have to install (ntlm_auth?)
  2. For these occurances, is there a consistent way to find package equivalents from other distributions to arch based ones?


It is part of the samba package.

I don’t know if there is mapping between packages because packaging can vary so much. However, you can use pkgfile to find which packages contain a given file.

First install and initialize it:

sudo pacman -Syu pkgfile
sudo pkgfile --update

Then you can use it to search:

pkgfile -s ntlm_auth

Don’t you think it’s weird a game with these requirements?

It looks like it is running under wine.

I installed samba and the error message is gone, thank you.

And yes, it’s a game running under wine-staging.
