    using samba from rpm (was: using rpm)

    I tried to install samba version 2.2 on a linux 7.0 it didn't give any errors but when I try to query if it is installed by
    rpm -q samba it gives a message of not installed

    the files I downloaded are .rpm files from red hat site
    what can be the problem???


    Another issue:
    when I tried to install samba 2.0.7-36 and then install samba-swat 2.0.7 it gives an error that a dependent samba 2.0.7 is requeired where can I get a pair of samba and a swat to work what versions??

    Re: using rpm

    I worked to find a software I installed from RedHat cd
    but now if I want to upgrade samba to 2.3 or 2.2 how do I upgrade it ?

    will I need to configure samba and the users again???

    up2date -i samba (;


    rpm -Uvh is the upgrade string, that will upgrade the packages, without overwriting your configurations.

    Yeah, like KP said, use the Uvh option instead of Ivh since you do not have Internet connection from the Linux box.
