Hi, I installed Samba, but messed up the configuration file. So I figured reinstalling would solve the problem.
But when I removed samba with "apt-get --purge remove samba" the configuration files were still there.

How can I fully remove all of samba?


P.S. "rm /etc/samba/smb.conf" from root doesn't work either.

From the man page on apt-get on my ShPg:

Quote
       purge
           purge is identical to remove except that packages are removed
           and purged (any configuration files are deleted too).

I think the format is apt-get purge pkg_name ...

Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately I can't test it anymore. I just formatted the sd-card and started over again.
