has been answered..
About your Yast issues. It has been said that rpm has no idea about what
you installed manually. You may search for newer versions somewhere on
the net but be prepared for trouble. Many applications link against
samba libs in some way and they may break with a new version suse has
not tested. The simple truth is: If you got suse, stick with what you
got, or build independent stuff elsewere and leave the systems version
in place.

use: strace -eopen smbpasswd to look what fails

good luck
