1-   ./ 
2-   ./configure
3-    make

Usually smb.conf file reside on /etc/samba/smb.conf or /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf but I does not find any smb.conf file after installation.

I also use but nothing find.

[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep samba

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Have a look in /usr/local/etc, or /usr/local/samba, or such.

Are you installing the client or the server? The client doesn't push smb.conf by default.

Have you tried

sudo find / | grep smb.conf
