Question Samba update

Hi guys, I'm tyring to update my version of samba on Red Hat 9. I've performed the following commands to uninstall the current version:

rpm -e samba-client
rpm -e samba-swat
rpm -e redhat-config-samba-1.0.4-1
rpm -e samba-2.2.7a-7.9.0

which all worked ok, but when I do the following:

rpm -e samba-common-2.2.7a-7.9.0

I get the following message:

error: Failed dependancies:
samba-common = 2.2.7a is need by (installed) samba-2.2.7a-7.9.0

I have done this before in a lab at Uni and it worked ok. Then I installed the new version from rpm. But it doesn't want to work this time. Could anyone shed some light...bearing in mind I am a complete novice.

May be you left some samba packages behind. Try:
$ rpm -qa | grep -i samba
