Upgrading Samba

I have samba 2.0.5a running on Redhat 6.1. I tried to upgrade to 2.0.6
but had problems. I downloaded samba-2_0_6-19991110_i386.rpm from
samba.org. I tried choosing upgrade from the Gnome RPM application. It
generated an error that listed 14 files that conflicted with version
2.0.5a. I renamed them all but still got the error. I moved them and
still got the error. I tried reinstalling 2.0.5a and then uninstalling it and then installing 2.0.6, but got the same error message. Each time when I chose to ignore the error, the installation stops and I get a failed installation message. I also tried doing this from a command line
and had the same results. Suggestions please!

when you tried to install 2.0.6 did you use rpm -Ui samba-2_0_6.rpm

I used a file from samba.org that was listed for Redhat. It was samba-2_0_9-19991110-i386.rpm or something real close to that, I'm not at the location of that machine right now so I can't check.

I just re-read you'd question. The command I used was rpn --install <package name>.

You should have used:

rpm -U whatever

And renaming files does not help. The filnames are in rpm's internal database.

I think "rpm --update whatever" works also.

That seemed to help, but now I get errors that it needs samba 2.0.5a. This version is installed and working. Any further ideas?

try rpm --update --force whatever

That might help.

It could be that youve moved/renamed too much and rpm looks for the files during upgrade.

Or you could "rpm -e old_whatever"
and then install the new(er) one.
