samba file have been tempered by mistake...

Hello all,
i was trying to configure samba on my linux machine.
Although samba and swat were already there but ignorantly i explicitly tried to install them.
samba through source( binaries ) and swat through rpms.
i tried samba with slapt-get too.
wasn't satisfied, so i manually removed the samba folder's wherever i found using
#locate samba
including /etc/samba
( i know this is not the right way to remove the packages installed through .tar)

then i retried to install it using source.
edited /etc/inetd.conf and /etc/services to enable swat.
but now when i'm writing http://localhost:901/ in the browser...its generating the following error

swat: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
now what should i do ???
I think there wasn't any requirement to install samba or swat explictly. Am i right ???

ok....i reinstalled the samba package from the first cd of Slackware 10.0.

#upgradepkg --install-new *.tgz

now swat is getting opened properly.
Now its strking me one thing that i must have installed older package of samba explicitly. Thats why this "upgradepkg" worked. Otherwise it would not have been.
What do u say ?

any other suggenstions ???

If the package doesn't exist, that will force it to install it, instead of upgrading it.

samba through source( binaries ) and swat through rpms
That might install the code in different libraries than where Slack puts them.
