When uninstalling, you can remove config with "pacman -Rn". this page tdbsam requires no further configuration. ; passdb backend = tdbsam # Using the following line enables you to customise your configuration # on a per machine basis.

Note that I 'chgrp adm /var/*/samba' and 'chmod g+rw /var/*/samba' to be able to run samba as a regular user. Executing smbstatus as non-rootuser I found that after upgrading to samba 3 (Debian 2.6.15 unstable), I was unable to execute smbstatus as a non-root user.
