    Why am asked to re-install Samba?

    I installed samba with:

    Code:
    # aptitude install samba
    I get the following:

    Code:
    The following NEW packages will be installed:
      samba 
    0 packages upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    Need to get 8,084 kB of archives. After unpacking 23.5 MB will be used.

    nmbd start/running, process 7040

    I made some changes to /etc/samba/smb.conf

    I went to restart samba

    Code:
    # samba restart
    and I get the message:

    Code:
    # The program 'samba' is currently not installed.  You can install it by typing:
    # apt-get install samba4
    WTF?

    I'm not sure about
    aptitude install samba
    apt-get install samba4
    is the correct way or use Synaptic.

    These days the daemons (background processes) for samba are named smbd and nmbd: it is these processes you will need to (re)start.

    The incantation for root is
    Code:
    service smbd restart 
    service nmbd restart
    Or from a non-root (sudoer) prompt
    Code:
    sudo service smbd restart
    sudo service nmbd restart
