The problem is that when i Purge samba, samba files remians there. the when i re-install the same files are there so for instance if i purge now the sbm.conf file does not get changed to a newfile. is there a way to get rid of everything even the files?

I manage to re-install samba but when i run the command rpm -qa | grep samba i do not get any output also if i try sudo apt-get install samba i get the following output root@22cansSRV1:~# sudo apt-get install samba Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done samba is already the newest version. The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required: linux-headers-3.5.0-17 linux-headers-3.5.0-17-generic Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 9 not upgraded.
