rpm -qa to find out the packages. if you think it's samba then rpm -qa | grep samba to ensure the right package name

rpm -qi net-snmp.......... ==> will give details on that package

Please note the above correction to by previous post. I'd like to claim it was a typo but the "i" and the "a" are nearly across the keyboard from each other. :-(

Good Luck with it.

if you are short on space, then you should uninstall, but for the sake of
security, you can leave the stuff on there just turn it off.

you can go to Service Configuration and uncheck the "Start on boot"
box for: routed gated snmpsmarttrapd and anything esle you dont want
to startup at boot (be careful though, dont turn off stuff you need)

Your reasoning is dead wrong. In this case security means you know what you're running when you need it, how you're running it and how to validate/monitor it. IF YOU DONT NEED IT, REMOVE IT.

Tigger: by now this thread is considered OT as far as security is concerned. Some people tend to give the wrong advise, other people repeat others, and so I'm closing this thread. If you still can't figure out how to uninstall rpm's, please open up a new thread in /Linux/General or /Linux/Software.
