I started as you instructed and when I get to this command,

	./bin/update-packageinfo 2.2.6pre 20020730

	I receive the error:  no such file or directory

next I changed to the RedHat dir. and executed sh makerpms.sh...this 
appeared to work fine.

i could not execute rpm -Uvh samba-2.2.6pre-20020730.i386.rpm
what I did execute is:   rpm -Uvh samba-2.2.5-1i386.rpm  and received 
the following error msg:  execution of %postun scriptlet from samba-
2.2.3a-6 failed, exit status 1

when I execute -e samba-common samba-client samba-server...I 
receive the following errors:

	samba-common not installed
	samba-client not installed
	samba server not installed

any ideas what I do from here?



Do the following:

download and untar samba sources somewhere

cd samba-2.2.6pre
cd packaging
./bin/update-packageinfo 2.2.6pre 20020730
cd RedHat
sh makerpms.sh

Wait for rpms to appear in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386
(Note that the samba-directory needs to be called the
same as the first argument to update-packageinfo)

rpm -Uvh samba-2.2.6pre-20020730.i386.rpm
(if trouble: remember that redhat divides their samba-rpm
so you may have to:
rpm -e samba-common samba-client samba-server
