Bug#24930: samba: samba needs to suggest psmisc? (fwd)
please take a look at the following bug I have just received. I thought
killall is supposed to be present on all Debian systems. Isn't this the
If that is the case then I prefer to print a text saying something like
"run ps ax|grep [sn]mbd" to get the PID's of the nmbd and smbd and the
kill those processes" rather than "now run killall nmbd and killall smbd".
I really don't want samba to suggest package psmisc (unless someone gives
me good reasons for doing so).

If samba is run from inetd, when you upgrade, the postinst suggests
to use the killall command, but that command is not always present
in a debian system.
killlall is in the package psmisc, so I think samba should suggest
