messed up samba!


i've messed up my samba server on my redhat 9 machine.

basically, the original installation worked, except that swat wasn't installed. i decided to install the latest complete version from the samba website.

i downloaded the samba 3.0.4 rpm package. when installing using the rpm -U procedure and error occured (can't remember what it was).

(filename samba-3.0.4-1_rh9.i386.rpm)

anyway, when i query the installation using rpm -qa |grep samba, gives:


then if i try to update using

rpm -U samba-3.0.4-1_rh9.i386.rpm

the error

package samba-3.0.4-1 is already installed

i've tried erasing it using

rpm -e samba-3.0.4-1_rh9.i386.rpm

but get the following error:

package samba-3.0.4-1_rh9.i386.rpm is not installed

I'm now stuck!


where do i now go

Try erasing it with command: 'rpm -e samba-3.0.4-1'

Or update with command 'rpm -Uvh --force samba-3.0.4-1_rh9.i386.rpm'
