Re: Samba package

I know what's happening because I went throught this problem before:
the /var/lib/dpkg/info/samba.prerm script stops any nmbd and smbd
that could be running. It does this by calling start-stop-daemon
but the script does not consider the case of no daemons running.

To solve the problem just edit /var/lib/dpkg/info/samba.prerm and
add the option --oknodo to the invocation of start-stop-daemon.
This option makes start-stop-daemon return a succesful code even
in the case of no daemons running, so the prerm script does not

This is definitely a bug in the Samba package that the new
maintainer should take care of.
