    I'm trying to uninstall samba 3.0.10-1.fc3 to install the new version but run into problems when trying to uninstall samba-client and samba-common.

    Here's what I get

    error: Failed dependencies:
            samba-client is needed by (installed) authconfig-gtk-4.6.5-3.1.i386
            samba-client is needed by (installed) AutoScan-0.95-1.i386
    and
    Code:
    # rpm -e samba-common-3.0.10-1.fc3
    error: Failed dependencies:
            libsmbclient.so.0 is needed by (installed) gnome-vfs2-smb-2.8.2-8.i386

    Code:
    rpm -e samba-client --no-deps
    then install the new one right away to prevent breakage.

    Samba

    Greetings,

    Did you tried to upgrade the Samba package b4 uninstalling it as the new package of Samba will look for more dependency files. So, I wud suggest you to do an upgrade instead on uninstalling it using -iUvh option.

    Regards
