Depending on your distribution, there is usually a package manager / updater tool that resolves dependencies automatically. You should use that instead of "rpm". Otherwise, you should explicitly also remove the things depending on it; i.e. "rpm -e samba-common samba-client gnome-vfs2-smb ..." It is not good to have missing dependencies.
